Even if you have never watched the film (and the film is good) this is a cracking album. I can quite happily watch the film just to listen to the music as it is so cool.
Tarantino films always tend to have good movie soundtracks and most peoples favourite is probably pulp fiction, but I have to say Jackie Brown is definitely my favourite.
If I had to describe the type of music I'd say the main theme seems to be a blend of soul/northern soul/motown so if you're into this kind of music you are on to a winner.
There are 17 tracks in total and it includes both older and more modern tracks, and I have to say if I was forced to name my favourites they would be 12) The Delphonics - Didn't I blow your mind this time and 1) Bobby Womack - Across 110th Street, but I love the whole album.
I didn't even know the Delphonics existed until I saw the film and this as opened up a whole new musical interest area for me.
Watch the film, buy the soundtrack!
I still consider Jackie Brown to be the best film Quentin Tarantino has ever made (sorry fans of Pulp Fiction or Resevior Dogs but it's just my humble opinion) so it makes sense that it would also sport one of the best soundtracks ever produced for one of his films. It is a lot more subtle and downright funkier than soundtracks from his previous collection, starting off with the wonderful "Across 110th Street", which is the opening theme to the film and always brings the image of Jackie Brown walking through the airport to the forefront of my mind when I close my eyes listening to it. This is such a cool album - an uber cool album if I have to be honest, that I probably don't deserve to have it in my collection because I probably can't carry it off. But Quentin Tarantino has such a way with music, that the attention to detail is bordering on geeky, which brings everything firmly back into my reach. This is a soundtrack you'll just play from beginning to end without even thinking about getting out of your chair.
