Bob, there's also an interesting 1966 album called The James Bond Songbook, performed by a West Coast group led by Jimmy Bond.  Playing on the bassist's name, the group was billed as "the James Bond Sextet."  Worth checking out:


Only catch is that just two of the themes on this album were actually written or co-written by John Barry ("Thunderball" and "Goldfinger"); many of the movies had yet to be made at that point, and the majority of the tracks were composed by Bond and Warren Baker.

My brain is not working tonight.. thought I knew some CDs with jazz versions of likes of Body Heat, Midnight Cowboy, and some of the Bond stuff  (well, I do at home but can't get home due to the weather). Can my fellow experts offer some suggestions for use tonight or tomorrow night?
