Dave Grusin's score for this Sydney Pollack treatment of the John Grisham legal thriller starring Tom Cruise consists of jazzy acoustic piano pieces, a surprisingly low-key, yet effective approach. It is augmented with some pop and fusion songs, notably tunes by Jimmy Buffett, Lyle Lovett, and Nanci Griffith, to give a feel of the contemporary Southern locale. ~ William Ruhlmann
