Music released in 1943, and my reviews.
1. Bernard Herrmann: Jane Eyre (9/10)
I have never seen the Orson Welles version of Jane Eyre (come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen any version of Jane Eyre) but after listening to this, I really kind of want to.
2. Memphis Minnie: “Looking the World Over” (8/10)
Strong sound quality reveals a particularly rangy vocal from Minnie and some fine playing from her accompanist. One of the highlights of her 40s recordings, I think.
Benny Carter and His Orchestra: “Midnight” (???/10)
Lukas Foss: Piano Concerto No. 1 (??/10)
