 This IS Some of the Best of Mr. Henry Mancini August 1, 2015 By Stephanie J. H. (Manchester, NJ) See All My Reviews "I've loved his music since the 50s. The man was a genius, and had a knack for writing the most ethereal, magnificent music. His film scores were incomparable, and his "regular" music was far from that - regular. When I played this disc I realized what I've been missing - his music. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. The past 21 years (he passed away in 94)were an abyss without his genius! Enjoy these!" Report Abuse
