A legend of jazz and film music in its best form. The colourful soundtrack from Henning Carlsen’s erotic comedy for the first time in complete form on CD.

The crazy, avantgarde comedy remaining in the spirit of the New Wave is today a cult film. The amorous adventures of the particular characters are accompanied by the expressive, highly varied music of Krzysztof Komeda. Though the leading motif of the film is the lyrical, subtle piano melody accompanied by a strings section, most themes here draw heavily from concepts combining jazz and Latino music – cascading percussion instruments, swinging flutes and groovy vocals create an atmosphere that is not found in any other of Komeda’s film music.

“People Meet and Sweet Music Fills the Heart” is now appearing on CD in its entirety for the first time. The material has been remastered from the original tapes and contains also alternative takes not used in the film. The booklet includes a short essay on the subject of the music and photos. The cover is based on a rare, Italian cinema poster of the film.
