Aleph Records just hit The Rock Father with full details on Lalo Schifrin: My Life in Music, a four-CD boxed set of music from the legendary composer’s career in film, jazz, and classical music. The set features music from three-dozen films, jazz and symphonic pieces composed by Schifrin, and unreleased music from films including Charley Varrick, The Beguiled, Joe Kidd, and Coogan’s Bluff. Along with over five hours worth of music, a forty-eight page book is included with archival photos and notes. My Life in Music is slated for release on November 6.

Director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Red Dragon) describes Lalo Schifrin as "… one of the greatest composers that's ever lived. He understands how to move an audience emotionally. There's nobody hipper than Lalo."

“I have been very fortunate in having the opportunity to compose music in the jazz, classical, and film/television genres during my career,” said Schifrin. “This box set is a very broad sampling of some of those works. It is an opportunity to share some well-known pieces and discover new music as well.” 

Over the span of his career, the 80-year-old composer has won five Grammys® (twenty-two nominations), one Cable ACE Award, and has received six Academy Award® nominations. Check out the full tracklisting for this new set below.
