Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #148

May 3, 2016

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far, this week, the album is She’s Gotta Have It (Soundtrack) by Bill Lee.

Released in 1986 on Antilles. The soundtrack to Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It remains unforgotten. Produced and orchestrated by the directors father, the great Bill Lee; he masterfully sets the tone of the film, creating a piece that is whole hearted, euphonious and off-centre theatrical, making for a wonderful Jazz album.
