From the Publisher
'The film is set in the now nostaligically tinged 1960's, and so it seemed to me that i might evoke the atmosphere of that time by writing a sort of impressionistic memoir of the progressive jazz movement that was then so popular. The alto saxophone seemed the ideal vehicle for this expression and the three movements of this suite are the result..
In 'Closing In', we have music that relates to the often humorous sleuthing which took place in the story, followed be 'Reflections', which refers to the fragile relationships in Abagnale's broken family. Finally, in 'Joy Ride', we have the music that accompanied Frank's wild flights of fantasy that took him all around the world before the law finally reigned him in.'
