Taking its title from the prediction fortune tellers use to beguile their marks, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, illustrates with wry humor how easy it is for our illusions to make fools of us all.
The soundtrack album blends an eclectic selection of pieces. Leon Redbone’s incomparable rendering of Wish Upon a Star and distinctly subtle versions of Luigi Boccherini’s Grave Assai set the tone of the album and take the listener on a engaging musical journey.
Once again, the unique sounds of Giulia y Los Tellarini, the group extensively featured in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, bring elegance and delicacy to the work. Elusive and jazzy tunes from Tom Sharpsteen & His Orlandos, Benny Goodman & His Orchestra or The Eddy Davis Trio complement the album.
