Black Music Month Lunch Time Movie: "Claudine"

Friday, June 29, 2018, 1:00 pm

Curtis Mayfield wrote and produced five or more movie soundtracks, and often times his soundtracks became more popular than the movies themselves.  His ability to sensitively score music and sound that conveyed the feeling, look and rhythm of story and subject was largely unmatched. Claudine, released in 1974,  was Curtis Mayfield's second movie soundtrack and it is no exception. He masterfully captures the essence of Claudine, a single mother of six who falls in love with a struggling garbage man with a big heart.
