The Black Dahlia Original Motion Picture Score, recorded at Abbey Road, London. The Black Dahlia tells the infamous story of Elizabeth Short, and the dark noir tale of her Hollywood murder. Directed by Brian DePalma, audiences are treated to a fresh hommage to traditional Hollwood noir. The score, with its nods to Bernstein, flows dramatically through the film, with Isham himself providing the mournful trumpet that anchors the music.
