Since Pete Kelly's Blues takes place during the 1920s, Harold Mooney's orchestrations combine elements of old-style Dixieland with a 1950s swing style.
This obscure LP features the Dixieland tunes that were utilized in the Jack Webb Hollywood movie Pete Kelly's Blues. Although four songs (which are given rather sappy treatment) feature Ray Heindorf directing the Warner Bros. Orchestra, most of the other performances are not from the film's soundtrack. Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald sang in the movie but are not on this album. However, the same hot combo from the movie (and one that would soon have an independent life) is featured on eight numbers.
