Rating Review
Customer Rating I didn't think books like this existed, but I'm so glad this one does. The publishers should be commended for bringing some of the greatest film composers and their compositions to the pianists who have dreamed of playing them for so long.

Of particular worth to me is the beautiful, incredibly evocative Blues For Guylaine, which I have attempted numerous times to play by ear, but never managed. Now I can and I'm so pleased.

Also worth mentioning are the pieces by Angelo Badalamenti, a fabulous composer whose pieces are long overdue for publication.

There is a broad range of difficulty (Mullholland Dr is easy to get first time out but L.A. Confidential should tax just about everyone who only has two hands), but the important thing here is that the transcriptions match the actual pieces perfectly and you are playing just what you've heard on the big screen.

Every good piano bar should have this book. Every piano playing film noir enthusiast should have this book. And every piano playing private eye should have this book.

Customer Rating As a solo pianist, I was disappointed with this collection. There are only 2 pieces that have any real melodic interest to the listener that I shall use. Most are limited in their harmonic ideas and would not merit performance, merely background fills for their respective films.
