I just heard a pre-release soundtrack for Melinda & Melinda and it's a powerful compilation. It's packed with at least three tracks each by traditional greats like Duke Ellington and some up-tempo stuff by Erroll
Garner. Dick Hyman has collaborated on Woody Allen movies before, he has some stuff on this too.

It's a cool combination of standards like "Take the 'A' Train" and "Moonglow," and some new recordings of contemporary classical pieces like Stravinsky's Concerto in D for String Orchestra and Bartok's String Quartet No. 4. They work really well with the rest of the jazz on the soundtrack.
Has anyone else heard anything about it?
