Four Rooms - OST - Combustible Edison

One of the best soundtracks ever! Utterly forgettable movie.
This soundtrack, like many of the other soundtracks created and pieced together by Quentin Tarantino, is very distinctive with wonderful examples of mixed up jazz and lounge singing, and to top it off, makes an art of martinis! Cocktail and Lounge music performed by Combustible Edison, except two songs, Sentimental Journey and Harlem Nocturne, are performed by Esquivel (compose, arranger, stereo sound pioneer from 50's and 60's). Adds to any party!

I love this soundtack and the movie.The movie kinda went under the radar even though Tarantino was involved with the flick.By the way what ever happened to Combustible Edison? Their "I Swinger" album is a true classic.

Big B -- unfortunately they combusted and went their separate ways - too bad. Their type of "lounge" revivalism only lasted a few years and the market wasn't there. Still too far ahead of thier times. That's a shame -they are GREAT musicians. This is a lot harder to do than it sounds, without getting into the cheeze category. Am posting "I Swinger" and "Schizophonic" this weekend to finsih the group. Put them Don Tiki, and Tipsy on all one sitting and you have the best of the modern movement. Enjoy.
