CYNDA WILLIAMS – “Harlem blues” (Acapulco version) - 1990

I have always been a big fan of Spike Lee movies. Here’s a beautiful Jazzy performance by actress Cynda Williams taken from the 1990 soundtrack “Mo’ better blues” released on Columbia Records.

Note that this song is a remake of W.C. Handy’s classic and this original adaptation is arranged by great musician Raymond Jones (original member of the group CHIC!)

Any soundtrack concerning a Spike Lee movie, is a considerable musical event.
With this excellent performance the boundaries have been pushed way further...
Nicolas, many thanks for the interesting trip!!!
