Program Notes

Mancini's jaunty march from the movie Hatari! is clever and fun to play, and really captures that special Mancini sound that mixes the symphonic and jazz idioms together.

- Program Note by publisher


Hatari! (Swahili for "Danger!") is a 1962 American action/adventure romantic drama film directed by Howard Hawks and starring John Wayne. It portrays a group of professional game catchers in Africa. The film includes dramatic wildlife chases and the scenic backdrop of Mount Meru, a dormant volcano.

Baby Elephant Walk is a song written in 1961 by Henry Mancini for the 1962 film Hatari! In 1963, the song earned Mancini a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement. The tune was written for an impromptu scene in Hatari! in which 'Dallas' (Elsa Martinelli) led three baby elephants to a waterhole to bathe.
