Film music had pending an update of the soundtrack of the film ' The Third Man', directed in 1949 by British director Carol Reed and certainly the most important in the history of British cinema. It is known that the creator and performer of the music of this film was the musician and sitar player Anton Karas (Vienna, 1906-85). The interpretation of this recording , disappeared Karas, has been left to the Bavarian instrumentalist Gertrud Huber (Altoetting, 1963), not only a classically trained musician, but nice player of zither and harp of concert. This work is an opportunity to renew with the current sound quality great soundtrack of this historical film.
GRP's generally well-chosen 1991 Collection covers an entire decade of Lee Ritenour releases from Elektra and GRP. As such, those years seem to form a late-'70s plateau descending into a commercial valley by the early part of the '80s and then gradually ascending a slope as Rit's playing grows and deepens in the decade's final years. Some of the high points are the Latin-inflected numbers from Festival ("Latin Lover") and Portrait ("Asa") and two excellent straight-ahead excerpts from Stolen Moments ("24th Street Blues," "Waltz for Carmen"), the latter two with lots of Wes Montgomery-like octave work. And even "Is It You?," Ritenour's pop hit from 1981, comes off as a good, catchy piece of record-making. Recommended for those who only want a sample of Lee Ritenour's voluminous solo output.
