Cop Jazz: A Look Back At Don Ellis' Musical Score Of The Classic Crime Film, 'The French Connection'

As I've noted here before, I'm a huge fan of the 1971 film, The French Connection.

One of the elements that made The French Connection suspenseful and thrilling was the eerie and unusual musical soundtrack by the late Don Ellis (seen in the below photo).
