Shutter Island [coll] – [Rhino Records Inc.]

Cousin Mary   2/25/2015   CD, Soundtrack

The composers on this soundtrack are a who’s who of modern classical composers – very intriguing selections that provide a variety of ominous, contemplative, experimental sounds. A few tracks (Cry, Wheel of Fortune, Tomrorow Night) are popular tunes from the late 40’s and early 50’s. The last track combines the two – a mix of Dinah Washington and Max Richter – that is gorgeous and moving. Highest recommendation!

The Dinah Washington track is as sublime as any longing, aching melancholy our ears have been priviledged to experience

Play late at night at every chance.
