Overview

For the soundtrack of his film Do the Right Thing, producer Spike Lee had his father Bill Lee write and arrange the music and utilized a septet of top jazz musicians plus an occasional string orchestra. Branford Marsalis (on tenor and soprano) is the leader of the jazz group which also includes trumpeters Terence Blanchard and Marlon Jordan, altoist Donald Harrison, either Kenny Barron or James Williams on piano, bassist Robert Hurst and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts. In the future Blanchard (based partly due to his work on this film) would become Spike Lee's musical director. Some of the 15 themes are more interesting than others while a few are little more than incidental music. Mostly recommended to Branford Marsalis completists.
