      Mancini: Peter Gunn: Peter Gunn Theme (2:09); Dreamsville (3:48)

      Harmonie Ensemble New York / Steven Richman

      Steven Richman and the Harmonie Ensemble New York place their own stamp on the trendsetting score written by Henry Mancini for Peter Gunn. The classic TV detective series, which ran from 1958 to 1961, is probably best remembered today for its music, which was inspired by the West Coast Cool jazz style. Richman writes, “I grew up watching and listening to that great TV show. Everyone knows the Peter Gunn theme but far fewer seem to know there is about an hour and a half of gorgeous music recycled in various forms throughout the show’s three seasons.”
