L.A. Noire soundtrack

The L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack is full of 40's jazz and blues music, in addition to period-authentic advertisements and radio shows playing over the radios of Team Bondi's recreation of 1947 Los Angeles.

"The music is produced and written by Stephen Coates (The Real Tuesday Weld) with guest vocals by Claudia Brucken (Propaganda), with additional music composed by Woody Jackson, whose work on Red Dead Redemption with Bill Elm won multiple awards."
