Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The story of the composer of "Moon River," "Baby Elephant Walk," "Peter Gunn," "Mr. Lucky," the Pink Panther themes, and countless other catchy TV and movie songs is one of childhood ambition fulfilled. From the time when his father, gruff but crucially influential upon his only child, took 11-year-old Henry to see DeMille's Crusades--which he heard more than saw--Mancini wanted to write film music. Before his composing started in the 1950s, he was an arranger-pianist in Tex Beneke's continuation of Glenn Miller's band. That experience enabled Mancini to breathe fresh, jazz-influenced life into a field of musical endeavor mired in Viennese late romanticism. The rest is history. Always more interesting when discussing work rather than family or famous friends, this book might be boring were Mancini's coauthor not the skillful jazz essayist Gene Lees, who enlivens the blunt dictation. The book still has its longueurs, but film-music enthusiasts will skim over them to get to the accounts of scoring for the silver screens big and small. To include discography, filmography, list of Mancini's awards, and index. --Ray Olson"
