Set in postwar London, ALFIE features Michael Caine as a chauffeur bent on promiscuity. After impregnating his girlfriend he takes off on vacation. He continues his life of womanizing, but he can’t hide forever. A misfortune strikes and Alfie is forced to face the product of his ways.
As UDISCOVERMUSIC.COM writes, “In the 1966 British romantic comedy ALFIE, it’s Sonny Rollins’s score that steals the leading role!”
Recorded at Twickenham Film Studios, the soundtrack features saxophonist Sonny Rollins, along with some of Britain’s finest jazz musicians: Keith Christie on trombone, Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott on tenor sax, pianist and arranger Stan Tracey, Dave Goldberg on guitar, and Phil Seaman on drums.
A performance by Jazz House Kids precedes the screening, beginning 30 minutes prior to showtime.
Presented in partnership with
