Title - 'Sully - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack'
Artist - Christian Jacob and The Tierney Sutton Band
Tom Hanks plays pilot Chesly Sullinger in the critically acclaimed film, 'Sully.' On January 15th, 2009, Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) tried to make an emergency landing in New York's Hudson River after US Airways Flight 1549 strikes a flock of geese.
Miraculously, all of the 155 passengers and crew survive the harrowing ordeal, and Sullenberger becomes a national hero in the eyes of the public and the media. Despite the accolades, the famed pilot now faces an investigation that threatens to destroy his career and reputation.
The original soundtrack album 'Sully' features the original music composed by Clint Eastwood, (Grace is Gone, Million Dollar Baby), Christian Jacob and the Tierney Sutton Band. A seven-time Grammy nominee, Sutton has received nominations for every project she has released in the last decade. Her new album, The Sting Variations, was released in September.
Bringing forth some 19 tracks that come together to create one incredible, breathtaking soundscape for the backdrop to this also incredible true life story, Jacob along with Sutton are at their peak form, trust me. From the opening track, 'Sully Suite' (which resonates throughout, and especially whenever the man is front and center) through to tracks such as the exhilarating 'Hudson View' and the thoughtful 'Sully Reflects', on through to the pulsating 'Times Square Run' and the ending companion pieces, 'Rescue' and 'Flying Home, 'Sully's score showcases a unique, stylish collaboration between like-minded jazz lovers.
With Jacob helming the score with complete and utter confidence and where it might take him, his incorporating of a beautiful, lyrical even piano theme is totally enhanced by Sutton’s lovely vocal styling. This means 'Sully', as a score, flies head and shoulders above any other film about an airplane disaster in recent history. It's just that good. That captivating.
