The musical accompaniment to George Clooney's biopic of journalist Ed Murrow, GOODNIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK, is crammed with contemporary jazz versions of 1940s and '50s favorites like "Straighten Up and Fly Right" and Dinah Washington's novelty hit "TV Is the Thing This Year" (minus the original's slightly risqu‚ verses). Reeves, together with a combo that includes saxophonist Matt Catingub and pianist Peter Martin, conjures an authentic cigarette-and-Martini soaked atmosphere on an exceptional soundtrack that's also a fine album in its own right.
