John Barry - The Cotton Club (Soundtrack) - 1984


John Barry - The Cotton Club (Soundtrack) - 1984 - Geffen

The movie by Coppola looks at the battle for control in prohibition-era Harlem. The Cotton Club is the place to be, where jazz is the sound of choice and glitz and glamour are all the rage. Even if you're not a great fan of jazz, this is a great album to listen to. Great music from some of the greatest jazz composers of all time. John Barry throws in a few nice tunes as well. It is also worthwhile checking out Steely Dan's amazing version of East St. Louis Toodle-O.
