Malcolm X [Original Soundtrack]

Also, two new tracks were written/performed specifically for the album, Arrested Development's "Revolution" made soon after their success with 3 years, 5 months..., and prior to their commercial failure in Zingalamaduni and Aretha Franklin's "Someday We'll All Be Free."

Even aside from any ties to the movie, the album makes for a nice little compilation of pre-bop jazz and blues.
