Laura

This is my instrumental cover of the classic theme from the classic 1944 film “Laura”.

Laura is a 1944 American “film noir” produced and directed by Otto Preminger. It stars Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews. The American Film Institute named it one of the 10 best mystery films of all time.

The theme was composed by David Raskin. Inspired by a “Dear John” letter he received from his wife, Raskin composed the haunting theme, also entitled “Laura”, for which Johnny Mercer later wrote lyrics. It eventually became a jazz standard recorded by more than 400 artists.
