These Desperate Hours  performed by  Mel Torme  (1955)
Composed by Burt Bacharach - Wilson Stone
Arranged by Marty Paich (?)
From: USA
Mood: film-noir, crime jazz
Recommended by bobbyspacetroup [profile] on Monday 28th January 2002

Here's another early Burt Bacharach composition, this one from (or just a promotional piece for?) the William Wyler film "The Desperate Hours." I haven't seen the movie, but this song makes me want to. This song is steeped in a heavy film noir atmosphere -- with vibes and wailing sax -- that I love. Needless to say, this has a very different sound from the stuff Bacharach would become famous for a few years down the road.
