Branford Marsalis particulars Ma Rainey’s Black Backside soundtrack

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is the new Netflix movie released on December 18, starring Viola Davis as blues icon Ma Rainey and the late Chadwick Boseman in its final performance. The soundtrack featuring original music by Branford Marsalis was announced today. It’s also December 18th (via Milan Records). Listen to the “El Train” soundtrack below.

“When I signed up to direct, I knew immediately that I wanted to work with Branford Marsalis because when you work with Branford the composer / arranger, Branford the historian, musicologist, playwright and writer comes along,” said Director George C. Wolfe said in a statement. “And because he understands the inherently transgressive nature of the blues, Branford’s arrangements capture not only the cultural and regional DNA in Ma Rainey’s songs, but also the wit and anger that is contained in every note, scream and moan.”
