Info for Lilyhammer The Score Vol.1: Jazz



From Little Steven's acclaimed Netflix TV series Lilyhammer comes the soundtrack to the first season. The jazz album, arranged and produced by Stevie Van Zandt features jazz standards, score and original songs including 3 vocal performances from Van Zandt on 'My Kind Of Town' 'All Of Me' and 'Ring-a-Ding Ding!'

Jazz collects together 13 of the best jazz compositions from the show and features a mix of jazz standards, instrumental score and original songs. Van Zandt provides vocals and channels the crooners of yore on the jazz classics, "All Of Me," "Ring-a-Ding Ding!" and the aforementioned "My Kind Of Town." Typically, the music created for TV is short musical cues but Van Zandt took a different approach. "I figured I've got some of the most talented musicians in New York City so why waste them on 15 second cues," Van Zandt explains. "We decided to have some fun. I'd meet Lee about an hour before the session and give him the top line melodies, basic chord changes and structure and talk about the overall mood of the piece. I wanted to try something different and get the musicians creative input and let these guys who were used to always reading their parts express themselves for a change. We would basically arrange it on the spot. I'd suggest a harmony, Lee would suggest an idea and the musicians would begin to orchestrate themselves. It was wild and extremely fruitful. After the success of the first session I knew we had a legitimate jazz album in addition to an incredible score."

Opening with the moody, evocative "Lilyhammer Nocturne (Theme from Lilyhammer)," allowing listeners to hear the full song that the theme song was developed from, the tunes range from the sensual ("The Night Before", "I'm A Fool To Want You") and swinging ("My Kind Of Town," "Rumble Island, "The Thief,") to the mysterious ("Sorceress") and melancholy ("Gloomy Sunday"). An accomplished set of songs that harkens back to the greats like Henry Mancini, Stan Getz and Nelson Riddle, the cinematic music transports you to a dark, smoky jazz club somewhere in 1950's New York or in this case, Norway in the late 2000s. The strength of the music, expertly performed by these veteran musicians, both stands on its own as a cohesive jazz album and as a soundtrack for fans who want to relive the great jazz music of the show.

“He’s not the only one, nor the oldest, nor the richest. But Little Stevie Van Zandt might currently be the planet’s most charismatic, dedicated and visible crusader scrapping to preserve the dirty purity of Rock ‘n Roll.” (BruceSpringsteen.net)

“I’m really proud of ‘Lilyhammer’ and the music I created for it. This was especially rewarding because it gave me the chance to finally do a score completely. This was a full commitment, I loved doing it and experimenting with sound and putting it to pictures and seeing what effect it has. It was a lot of fun, I’d love to do more of it.” (Stevie Van Zandt)

The music of “Lilyhammer” was arranged and produced by Van Zandt and recorded at his Renegade Studios in New York and at various studios in Norway while in the midst of filming. It was recorded, mixed and co-produced by Geoff Sanoff and mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.
