Now that the sheet music has been unearthed for so many unusual film scores and songs, we have decided to bring in a professional pianist and a few vocalists to plow through the pile and play through a bunch of them.

Here is the first of those recordings: THE ADVENTURES OF HAJJI BABA by Dimitri Tiomkin with lyrics by Ned Washington.

The singer is Rena Strober who is sight-reading this with no rehearsal. The pianist, who is doing the same is Mike Farrell. Singer Stephen Van Dorn looks on for moral support.

Here is a link to a checklist to a checklist of Sheet Music from which this was chosen.

Hope you enjoy.

Okay, I'll say it. There's two Js in "Hajji"and no P in "Tiomkin."

(And thank you all for embarking upon this fun sheet music project.)

Thanks for the corrections. Have made the changes.

We defy anyone to listen to this and not have it reverberate in your skull for the next week!

Sheetmusicman!

I sent you a scan of a title you did not have yet. I used your screen name + 007 at gmail.

If this is incorrect, please let me know where to re-send.


And thank you for the video of the hypnotic young woman doing exotic moves and singing in Middle Eastern modes! smile

could this score be lying around in the fox vaults since they are known to preserve their music and one day be available for commercial release? thanks for any information.

THE ADVENTURES OF HAJJI BABA was an independent Walter Wanger production produced for Allied Artists Pictures. 20th Century-Fox was only the distributor of the film.

Other than the final negative which they have a right to print from and distribute, I doubt if Fox has, or ever had, any other ownership or elements on the film. It's also entirely possible the score was never even recorded at Fox, but some other rental recording studio in town.

Okay, now this one was fun. I'd never heard it before, but now I can't get it out of my head.

It's very addictive, isn't it?

I have the wonderful Nat King Cole version but this one with Rena Strober undulating is the winner for me. Tiomkin has never been this sultry.

Still hasn't grown on me after watching it for the second time.
