Album 1958 25 Songs. The result is worth appreciating as an album apart from the film Preminger used only a portion of the music. Johnny Hodges, with his swooping, instantly identifiable alto sax sound, prevails on Way Early Subtone, Haupe, and the Lee Remick theme music Flirtibird. While Anatomy of a Murder might not have been Ellingtons most famous or essential recording, it was a beauty-and an artistic milestone that carved out a new lane for African American artists.

Otto Premingers classic 1959 courtroom drama was the first Hollywood movie to feature a score by an African-American composer. A similar process occurred for what made the final cut of the soundtrack album too, put together by its producer Irving Townsend, and explaining the discrepancies between the final soundtrack LP and the final score. Either way, it did little to lessen the success of the film or its music. The film was nominated for seven Oscars including Best Picture it lost out to Ben-Hur, while the soundtrack won three Grammys including Best Sound Track Album.

Several of the Ellington band's sidemen, notably Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Harry Carney, Russell Procope, and William Cat Anderson, are heard prominently throughout the film, and Ellington himself appears briefly as Pie-Eye, the owner of a roadhouse where Paul Biegler Stewart and Laura Manion Remick have a confrontation. Redirected from Anatomy of a Murder soundtrack. Anatomy of a Murder is a 1959 American courtroom drama crime film produced and directed by Otto Preminger. The screenplay by Wendell Mayes was based on the 1958 novel of the same name written by Michigan Supreme Court Justice John D. Voelker under the pen name Robert Traver. Voelker based the novel on a 1952 murder case in which he was the defense attorney. This was Duke Ellington's first film score, undertaken at the urging of Anatomy of a Murder's director, Otto Preminger. The full range of the composer's previous work was brought to bear on this 1959 work. Ellington was a natural choice to convey the rich and varied emotional moods of this drama. Tension and release, danger and safety, movement and stillness, darkness and light the textural palette that was Ellington's signature was always compellingly cinematic. In these orchestral settings, Duke's soloists Cat Anderson, Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, and. Duke Ellington. Anatomy of a Murder From the Soundtrack of the Motion Picture
