Frankly this album just about qualifies for inclusion on this site because of its total length, only fourteen minutes is devoted to non-source music. The songs included are a mixed bunch, some good, some not so good. The best are the oldest: Astrud Gilberto’s ‘Agua De Beber’ (recalling that Latin Bosa Nova style of the 1960s); Sarah Vaughan singing ‘Quiet Nights (of Stars)’ Susannah McCorkle singing ‘The Waters of March’ and Eman, ‘Wonderfully Strange’ – all colourful or slightly ‘mysterioso’ or with an exotic beat.
Debney’s (and Elfman’s) music offers nothing novel. It fits comfortably into the ‘Easy Listening’ category for what appears to be a romantic comedy. It covers a number of moods – intrigue and sultry romance - with familiar-sounding music that boasts bright strong rhythms and colourful orchestrations mostly of a sultry Latin disposition. An agreeable hour’s entertainment; suitable for parties.
