This is the official soundtrack from the movie Round Midnight.
Although tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon (who is only actually on five of the 11 songs) was past his prime, his realistic acting gained him a nomination for an Oscar. In addition to Gordon, this historic and generally well-rounded album has performances by pianists Herbie Hancock and Cedar Walton, vocalist Bobby McFerrin, bassists Ron Carter and Pierre Michelot, drummers Tony Williams and Billy Higgins, guitarist John McLaughlin, trumpeters Freddie Hubbard and Chet Baker, Wayne Shorter on tenor and soprano, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson and a vocal by Lonette McKee.
