Bruce Hornsby's Soundtrack To Spike Lee's RED HOOK SUMMER Available Now Digitally
CD Released On August 28th
"Red Hook Summer," like most of Mr. Lee's films, has a prominent musical soundtrack that underscores the editorial tone of the screenplay, written by Mr. Lee with James McBride. Its binding ingredient is the sturdy, gospel-tinged piano of Bruce Hornsby…" Stephen Holden, NY Times
SANTA MONICA, Calif, Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce Hornsby is set for the release of his soundtrack to the Spike Lee film RED HOOK SUMMER. The film will be released in New York City August 10 and nationally on August 24th. The self-produced soundtrack consists of Hornsby's distinctively evocative original instrumental solo piano compositions with two vocal tracks also included. Through a partnership with 429 Records, Hornsby's album is available now as a wide digital release. 429 Records will release a CD version on August 28th.
RED HOOK SUMMER, Hornsby's second project for 429 Records, follows up 2011's BRIDE OF THE NOISEMAKERS—a 2CD collection of 25 handpicked songs recorded live on tour in various venues between 2007 and 2009. The American singer, pianist, accordion player and songwriter has nurtured a highly respected repertoire, drawing freely from the musical worlds of classical, jazz, bluegrass, folk, Motown, rock and blues. This diversity is reflected in his songwriting and the seamless improvisations of his creative live performances.
RED HOOK SUMMER is a film written and directed by Spike Lee. The film will be released on August 10th by 40 Acres and a Mule. The story is centered on Flik Royale, a thirteen year old boy from Atlanta who is sent to live with his preacher grandfather, Da Good Bishop Enoch Rouse.
