Touch Of Evil OST !!

Continuing with a 50's era movie soundtrack theme:
Unquestionably one of Mancini's greatest achievements, this score
to the classic 1958 Orson Welles film of scandal and intrigue along
the Mexican border used a lot of appropriate Latin accents: Afro-
Cuban percussion, smoky Tijuana jazz jive, and honky tonking
instrumental jump blues with a strong rock & roll flavor. Both
ominous and exuberant in its evocation of temptation and
deceit, it attracted the specific praise of no less a critic

Henry Mancini
1958
