1943 in Music

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.

Read the full review.


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)
