CD REVIEW - Suits on the Loose

Before I come to my review of Suits on the Loose, just to tell you that this coming Friday if you tune in to BBC Radio 4 at 4:30 p.m. you can hear Francine Stock's interview with John Williams on The Film Programme.

Suits on the Loose
Music by Alan Williams
Silverscreen Music SMCD 022
19 Tracks 39:35 mins

Once again Alan Williams shows his versatility, as music for this comedic caper is largely written in the modern Country style, reminiscent of the recent Dukes of Hazzard remake, with much guitar and harmonica driven country rock, though there are some more light and airy Western-styled moments and even a touch of Bluegrass, all performed by multi-instrumentalist Tim May, Larry David on harmonica, Peter Kent on fiddle and the composer himself at the piano. My favourite parts of the score however are the quieter, more sentimental moments featuring Williams's piano, sometimes allied to May's acoustic guitar, with occasional light synths backing. The composer ends the score with a bang, reprising his principal Country Rock, Western and Bluegrass material to provide a rip-roaring finish.
