Soundtrack Review: "The Silencers" By Elmer Bernstein; CD Debut From Vocalion

The Silencers” – Elmer Bernstein

It’s always great to see a classic soundtrack album receive its debut on CD, and Elmer Bernstein’s stylish Matt Helm score The Silencers (CDLK4573) is no exception. Dean Martin’s campy but hugely enjoyable spy capers were made during a successful period of spy-time, when Bond, Flint and numerous other secret agents were dominant in cinema entertainment. Bernstein’s jazzy, cool and deliciously infectious score ticks all the desired boxes. Bernstein fills the soundscape with big brass and fast percussion, most of which are laced with a hip, Latin beat. The composer provides plenty of swing, but it’s never without an underlying sense of fun, a playfulness throughout which perfectly mirrors Helm’s on screen exploits. Aside from Bernstein’s score, the two vocal tracks sung by Vikki Carr (co-written by Mack David) ‘The Silencers’ and ‘Santiago’ also offer a sassy sense of relevant glitz. »
