Once again Woody Allen turns to Conal Fowkes to provide music for his new film. Blue Jasmine opened July 26th in limited theaters in the US and in it’s opening weekend grossed more than any other film of the director’s career (including even Midnight In Paris!).
In the film you will hear Conal Fowkes performing the movie’s theme song “Blue Moon” which appears near the beginning of the film and again as the story comes to a disturbing close and into the credits.
Starring the amazing Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, Alec Baldwin and Peter Sarsgaard, there is already much talk of Oscar nominations.
Congratulations to Conal Fowkes, Eddy Davis and the Yerason Trio (Yrving Yeras, Lisa Yeras and Conal Fowkes) for their contributions to this wonderful album.
