Space Cowboys

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Clint Eastwood uses his clout in the right way. For the soundtrack to his new film Space Cowboys Eastwood has corralled a host of top-notch jazz artists to contribute to the soundtrack. Some performances are unexpected to say the least: pianist Brad Mehldau essaying Neil Young's "Old Man, and Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years"; Joshua Redman taking on the Ray Charles hit "Hit the Road Jack"; organist Larry Goldings, joined by James Brown vets Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley, grooving on the old Stax hit "Last Night." Less surprising, though just as effective, are Redman's spin through the Sinatra classics "The Second Time Around" and "The Best Is Yet to ...

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Clint Eastwood uses his clout in the right way. For the soundtrack to his new film Space Cowboys Eastwood has corralled a host of top-notch jazz artists to contribute to the soundtrack. Some performances are unexpected to say the least: pianist Brad Mehldau essaying Neil Young's "Old Man, and Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years"; Joshua Redman taking on the Ray Charles hit "Hit the Road Jack"; organist Larry Goldings, joined by James Brown vets Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley, grooving on the old Stax hit "Last Night." Less surprising, though just as effective, are Redman's spin through the Sinatra classics "The Second Time Around" and "The Best Is Yet to Come." Willie Nelson also gets in the swing of things with touching versions of "Young at Heart" and "Still Crazy After All These Years." And to top it all off, there's Sinatra himself on a snappy "Fly Me to the Moon" in front of Count Basie's always- swinging orchestra.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Clint Eastwood has a reputation for putting together good musical sources for his films, and his song choices for Space Cowboys, the tale of four aging fighter pilots sent into space to prevent a satellite from damaging the earth, maintain his track record well. A fan of both country and jazz, Eastwood has indulged both tastes, assembling a basic backing band consisting of arranger/conductor/pianist Gil Goldstein, organist Larry Goldings, guitarist Peter Bernstein, bassists Dennis Irwin and Bill Street, and drummer Bill Stewart; choosing pop songs of various vintages that comment wittily on his protagonists and their situation ("Still Crazy After All These Years," "The Best Is Yet to Come," "Take It to the Limit [One More Time]," "Young at Heart," "The Second Time Around"); and matching them to country singers like Willie Nelson and Chad Brock and jazz instrumentalists like Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau. It all works beautifully, off-screen as well as on. Nelson, of course, is a past master at this sort of genre hopping, while the jazzmen find things to do with sometimes unlikely material such as when Mehldau takes on Neil Young's "Old Man." And concluding with the Frank Sinatra/Count Basie recording of "Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)" is, as Eastwood says, "kind of a no-brainer" that works as well as the other material. This soundtrack album stands on its own and will make a good souvenir for those who have seen the film.
