Solomon Burke enlisted the help of Gene Page and Jerry Styner for the purposes of orchestrating and co-ordinating this great soundtrack LP. A distinct move away from his soul tracks of the 1960s, the vocal numbers on the 'Cool Breeze' LP are very funky with a slow, early 70s groove. The instrumental tracks come highly recommended, being faster and equally funky. The sound is full, with the core funk band augmented by a brass-heavy orchestra. Well worth listening to; the film is entertaining too.
