Virtuoso pianist/guitarist/recording engineer/composer Jamie Saft has been a crucial member of the downtown scene since the early 1990s, both as sideman and as leader of his own ensembles. In more recent years he has turned his hand to scoring film, and this exciting collection displays the incredible facility and diverse range of his compositional and production skills. Recorded and mixed at his infamous studio Frank Booth, the cues range from jazz, reggae and heavy metal to Jewish music, classical and more. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Jamie performs most of the music himself, bringing in a few luminaries from the downtown scene as special guests. The music is moody, intense, driving, lyrical and a constant delight.
