HATARI! Sloundtrack by Henry Mancini
Coming from a double Oscar win for his Breakfast at Tiffany's score, Henry Mancini produced this score for the Howard Hawks-directed, John Wayne-starring safari comedy.
This is at first a fun blend of jazz and Afro-exotica, jungle drums mixed with a classic bop combo. Elsewhere, however, the soundtrack opts for some pleasant, but very Western jazz, only stopping for the African instrument-sampler "The Sounds of Hatari," which features some nice treated piano.
The Falvio Lenzi reissue of the 1962 soundtrack from RCA Victor Gold Series, packled into a 180gram pure virgin vinyl is probably th best record ever made of Hatari!
