Smile Film Noire Jazz

I used to play Jazz trumpet with a traveling group, and I am a huge fan and I too love the Film Noire Jazz music.

I found "The Black Dahlia" film soundtrack and "L.A. Noire" game soundtrack are 2 extremely good CD's and I highly recommend them. "Anatomy Of A Murder" film soundtrack is also really good (as someone has suggested before).
There are few more, I'll post when I remember.

These other suggestions (like Jan Garbarek) are very moody and interesting new agey types, but I don't exactly consider them in the same genre as those classic Film Noire types. No offense intended.

the 4 CD's I remembered in this Genre are:
-"The Crime Scene" (made in 1996 and kinda upbeat jazz)
-"Crime Scene USA" (remastered music right off the films from the 1940's)
-"Film Noir!" (made in 2005 rerecorded and rewritten for today's audiences - some great songs here!)
-"White Heat Film Noir" (The best of these 4. Really moody and dripping with tension!)

Miles Davis' Blue in Green should be re-titled, "Standard Film Noir Soundtrack, #1"

It's not "detective-y", but Chet Baker is really mellow.

Don't miss the several albums of the Philadelphia group "Somewhere Off Jazz Street", available free for personal use on jamendo.com. From your description, they're a perfect fit!

Ooh, I love Garbarek's music, although it would not occur to me to call it noir. Of my several other favorite artists on the ECM label, Terje Rypdal (primarily a guitarist) would fit that bill best. Electronics often figure in his work. But the mood is always mysterious and somber, even sometimes rather gloomy in a wonderful way.

Although occasionally I find Garbarek a tad trite, on the whole the work of both of these men has enough integrity to stand up to years of listening. Rypdal has actually ventured into classical composition (although not IMHO quite as successfully as his jazz-style music). One especially unique LP of Garbarek's, now all too rare and apparently never issued on CD, is "Aftenland": a series of saxophone improvisations with the organist Kjell Johnson, so fascinating that it is hard to believe they are improvisations. Have you heard it? One track even uses modes of limited transposition a la Messiaen. Impossible, I thought, until by chance I saw an obscure French book of exercises (published by Billaudot) specifically to equip a saxophonist with this vocabulary in improvising. Garbarek must have mastered it. I'm in awe.

Pick the option titled "Burlesque Music"--a piece called "Sidewalk Blues". This is not Jelly Roll Morton's "Sidewalk Blues." I first heard this track when I bought a Betty Page Danger Girl CD some years back. It is quintessential film noir music.

You can apparently order a free mp3 download from this site. I haven't tried since I already have it.
