Cool Coleman

Cool Coleman
Westminster WST 15001

Small combo jazz featuring pianist Cy Coleman, bassist Aaron Bell and percussionist Charlie Smith. Coleman wrote the majority of the tunes on the album.

This is a great, and somewhat obscure jazz album. There is a CD floating around out there... but both the CD and the album are a bit hard to find. None-the-less, I'll have to pass on posting a sample.

One of Coleman's popular tunes, Witchcraft appears on this album. He also wrote Playboy's Theme which became the signature music of Playboy television features.

Coleman soon moved on from work such as this to assume a career composing for Broadway shows such as Wildcat which marked the debut of comedienne Lucille Ball.
