Lalo Schifrin is an outstanding arranger, composer and pianist who has deservedly earned fame in his years of work composing soundtracks for TV series. “Mission Impossible”, “Manix” and other renowned television series bear his signature and seal. But Lalo is, essentially, a jazz musician, and this “Black Widow” is his star album for a label, CTI, that was not lavish in offering its studies to anyone. This is a good album by an Argentine musician, who loves jazz above all music.
