Lost Light” is the latest Harry Bosch novel from Michael Connelly. If you are not familiar with Harry Bosch, he is a former LAPD Homicide detective who resigned at the end of the previous novel, “City of Bones”. Bosch is a jazz fan, so to promote Connelly’s book tour, they have put together a sampler called “Dark Sacred Night, the music of Harry Bosch“.

The sampler includes:

1. “Lullaby” – Frank Morgan, Mood Indigo

2. “Soul Eyes” – John Coltrane, The Gentle Side Of John Coltrane

3. “My Funny Valentine” – Art Pepper and the Hollywood All-Stars, Art Standards

4. “My Foolish Heart” – Bill Evans, Bill Evans Walkman

5. “Mood Indigo” – Frank Morgan, Jazz ‘Round Midnight

6. “For All We Know” – Sonny Rollins, Falling In Love With Jazz

7. “Lush Life” – Joe Henderson, The Definitive Joe Henderson

8. “Straight Life” – Art Pepper, Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section

9. “Willow Weep For Me” – Clifford Brown, Clifford Brown

10. “What A Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong, Pure Jazz

Garry Giddens wrote the liner notes for this collection with excerpts from the relevant novels:

“Harry Bosch is too savvy and emotional a jazz lover to favor musicians just because of the lives they’ve led. Yet he plainly has a soft spot for those who have sparred with demons and stayed the course. Perhaps he simply responds to musical tales in which profound beauty and deep woe are inseparable.”
