Duke's music doesn's match so well this movie

Hello friends, I a musician - composer & arranger and i did not like so mucho Duke Ellington's music at this movie. It sound like an experiment and it doesn't give a great back ground for manny scenes, sometimes it sound out of order. To me, Duke was a genius of jazz but movie. Writing music for films demand a psicological strategic and maybe few years doing so.
Sorry for my english friends and all respects

Maybe we should suggest that he check out....."Anatomy of a Murder.' Hopefully that will be more to his liking.
