Soundtrack for 'L.A. Noire' has us jazzed up

Announcing Two Original Albums From L.A. Noire.  Left: L.A. Noire: Remixed, a six track EP featuring jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today's most acclaimed DJs and producers.  Right: L.A. Noire The Official Soundtrack, an original orchestral score, along with modern takes on the classical torch songs of the era.

You already know that most of The POP Patrol is counting down the days to the release of 'L.A. Noire' like Christmas is coming.  The same day the game gets in your hands (May 17) you'll also be able to enjoy the smooth sounds of the 'L.A. Noire' soundtracks.  The music that makes a noire thriller come to life will be available next week on iTunes.

Here is what Rockstar Games has to say about it:

The L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack was inspired by the sweeping orchestral scores of the great films of the 1940s. This all-original score was recorded in London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios and composed by Andrew Hale, of the band Sade and Sweetback and whose credits include scores for such films as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The soundtrack also features modern takes on the classic torch songs of the period. Three original vocal recordings were created for the soundtrack, all produced and written by Stephen Coates (of The Real Tuesday Weld) and featuring the guest vocals of Claudia Brucken (of Propoganda). Additional music was composed for the score by Woody Jackson, who won multiple awards for his work with Bill Elm on the original score of Red Dead Redemption.
Players will also hear over 30 classic licensed jazz tracks in the game itself, including songs from such greats as Billy Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Thelonious Monk.
There will also be a remix album available featuring six jazz standards "re-imagined" by several top DJ's and producers.

Look for previews of the music to be made available sometime next week.

What say you?
