Overview

Terence Blanchard is not only one of jazz' young trumpet greats, he's also amassing a solid resume as a film composer, with Spike Lee's Malcolm X and Summer of Sam among his credits. The film Original Sin pairs Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie in Cuba early in the 19th century, and thus the score has a sweeping classical element and Latin flavor, evident in tandem on the all-too-short piece "Wedding Reception." Various musicians are given impressive solo time. Edward Simon's elegant piano fronts the mournful orchestra on "Love Scene," while "Emily's Letter" and "It's Edmond" feature the balmy flamenco guitar sweetness of John Farricelli. Blanchard's trumpet doesn't appear often enough, but he adds mood and mystery to the suspense-building "Try to Run" and the sexy slow-dancing closing theme "Boat to Havana." "The Brothel" is essentially a spirited saloon piano solo by Simon. As with most scores created by recording artists, a good handful of pieces actually function well on their own, but the majority of tracks here are strictly visual mood enhancers. Blanchard shows that he's equally comfortable with Latin as he is with his mastery of jazz.
