Whiplash: Soundtrack – Various Artists (Vinyl LP)


Varèse Sarabande Records is pleased to offer a vinyl pressing of the original motion picture soundtrack to Damien Chazelle’s Academy Award winning 2014 film Whiplash which features movie dialogue, original score and big band songs by Justin Hurwitz, original big band competition pieces by Tim Simonec and classic jazz standards by Stan Getz (“Intoit”), Duke Ellington (“Caravan”) and Hank Levy (“Whiplash”).
Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father (Paul Reiser), Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man’s life. Andrew’s passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability and his sanity.
In addition to the original score and big band pieces from Hurwitz, the soundtrack includes original big band competition pieces by Tim Simonec. “After being the orchestrator of so many films for the past few years, it was very exciting to be asked to compose…and in one my favorite idioms, Big Band Jazz,” said Simonec. “Working with director Damien Chazelle was truly an amazing experience. His knowledge of Big Band Jazz made him communicate exactly what he wanted for each scene, and his suggestions after hearing my ideas made the compositions that much better.”
