Smoke [Original Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
This soundtrack to Wayne Wang's 1995 comedic drama Smoke is perhaps most notable for featuring two otherwise unavailable studio recordings from the Jerry Garcia Band. "Cigarettes and Coffee," which was originally a soulful Otis Redding vehicle co-written by Jerry Butler, as well as the Jerome Kern pop standard "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" are covered to great effect. Also included is some of the film's incidental score by Rachel Portman -- represented by the tracks "Augie's Photo" and "Snow Story." There is also music derived from a wide variety of artists. Tom Waits contributes both "Downtown Train" as well as "Innocent When You Dream" and neo-classical Bulgarian musician ...

This soundtrack to Wayne Wang's 1995 comedic drama Smoke is perhaps most notable for featuring two otherwise unavailable studio recordings from the Jerry Garcia Band. "Cigarettes and Coffee," which was originally a soulful Otis Redding vehicle co-written by Jerry Butler, as well as the Jerome Kern pop standard "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" are covered to great effect. Also included is some of the film's incidental score by Rachel Portman -- represented by the tracks "Augie's Photo" and "Snow Story." There is also music derived from a wide variety of artists. Tom Waits contributes both "Downtown Train" as well as "Innocent When You Dream" and neo-classical Bulgarian musician Tatiana Koleva interprets Dmitri Shostakovich's "Prelude and Fugue for Piano, Op. 87, No.1 In C Major." Also worked in is the Greek-influenced worldbeat of Annbouboula's "Baby Wants Kisses." While only the Garcia Band numbers seem to bear a striking thematic resemblance to the film, Wang's eclectic choices contribute to the overall cinematic structure in the background as well as foreground. The final incarnation of the Garcia Band features Jerry guitar/vocals, Melvin Seals keyboards, John Kahn bass, Donny Baldwin drums, Gloria Jones backing vocals, and Jackie LaBranch backing vocals. "Cigarettes and Coffee" retains the lonesome blues funk of the more familiar version. Although any copious fretwork is conspicuous in its absence, Garcia's vocals range from withdrawn to robust as he knowingly animates the lyrics with a mature perspective. Seals' tasty Hammond organ and piano runs bob and weave throughout with an authentic gospel flavor that is filled by the sweet backing harmonies of Jones and LaBranch. By contrast, "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" is given an upfront and aggressive blues workout that does feature some antagonistic guitar work, commencing with a fiery lead intro to the lightly syncopated and breezy arrangement. Again, the support vocalists lift a lilting countermelody to Garcia's amiable lead. Baldwin also asserts some tasty drum licks against Kahn's propulsive bass. There was a music video for the song that intercut clips of the film with shots of the band playing. It aired primarily on VH1 and was also given a heavier rotation when Garcia passed away two months after the soundtrack was issued. Enthusiasts of the guitarist are encouraged to seek out this title for these worthwhile performances.
