From the Manufacturer

In 1991, the prestigious British composer George Fenton (Gandhi, The Company of Wolves, High Spirits, A Handful of Dust, Dangerous Liaisons, The Fisher King, Shadowlands, Mary Reilly, Land and Freedom) was chosen by director John Bailey to write the score of China Moon.

George Fenton's intese score is in the same sultry jazz mode as John Barry's music for Body Heat, although neither of the scores resemble the other outside of their predominent noir-ish sensibility. Fenton favors a bluesy trumpet over electric piano and light drums for his main theme, with a sparkling percussion ringing that glints like refracted moonlight across the score's shadowy soundscape.

This album has been assembled and mastered using the original digital masters, courtesy of MGM, and the composer's own tapes, all in a pristine stereo sound. The package includes 16-page full color booklet with liner notes and track-by-track analysis by Randall D. Larson.
