Collectable's reissue of Duke Jordan's soundtrack for Roger Vadim's film Les Liasions Dangereuses is a straight-up reissue, containing all seven tracks from the original album. Supported by Art Taylor, Eddie Kahn, Charlie Rouse and Sonny Cohn, Jordan plays a laid-back set of bop that only rarely moves over to hard-bop. For the most part, the record consists of romantic or atmospheric mood pieces and while this doesn't capture Jordan at his best, it certainly is enjoyable music. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
