Duke Jordan (Piano), Art Blakey (Drums)
The complete soundtrack music recorded by Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers for the French films Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons, 1959, directed by Roger Vadim), and Des Femmes Disparaissent (Women Disappear, 1958, directed by Édouard Molinaro). Featured are such stars as Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, Barney Wilen, Bobby Timmons, and Blakey himself.
Les Liaisons Dangereuses‘s score was composed by pianist Duke Jordan, who also recorded an album with the soundtrack music (Charlie Parker Records LP-813-S), included here in its entirety, which also features Charlie Rouse, and Art Taylor.
Quintet versions of two of the film’s best songs, »No Problem« and »Miguel’s Party« recorded in Paris in 1959 by a quintet fronted by Clark Terry, Barney Wilen and Bud Powell, have been added here as a bonus.
