DA 5 BLOODS - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE
COMPOSED BY TERENCE BLANCHARD
AVAILABLE NOW FROM MILAN RECORDS
Milan Records today releases DA 5 BLOODS (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE) with music composed by six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning trumpeter and composer TERENCE BLANCHARD. Available everywhere now, the album features music written by Blanchard for director Spike Lee's forthcoming film premiering on Netflix Friday, June 12. The project reunites Blanchard with longtime collaborator Spike Lee, having most recently worked together on Lee's Academy Award®-winning film BlacKkKlansman.
Of the score, composer TERENCE BLANCHARD says, "This is an amazing story. And again, Spike Lee has found a way to take an American tale and turn it into a visually stunning, artistic work of art. In doing so, he has pushed me to reach farther in my orchestrations and in my thematic development. It was such a pleasure creating music to accompany a story that addresses our individual humanity and the immorality of the Vietnam War."
From Academy Award® Winner Spike Lee comes a New Joint: the story of four African-American Vets - Paul (Delroy Lindo), Otis (Clarke Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis), and Melvin (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) - who return to Vietnam. Searching for the remains of their fallen Squad Leader (Chadwick Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure, our heroes, joined by Paul's concerned son (Jonathan Majors), battle forces of Man and Nature - while confronted by the lasting ravages of The Immorality of The Vietnam War.
