Not enough soundtracks do this in my opinion. Check out Marion Caffey's retelling on when Ella Fitzgerald first sang on amateur night and promptly flubbed the words of the song! Amazingly, we get that recording on the very next track. As to the songs themselves, it's like getting an introduction into some of the most important music from the 20th century. Duke Ellington! Count Basie! Pearl Bailey! Billie Holiday! Charles Mingus! James Brown! Marvin Gaye! Gladys Knight! Aretha Franklin!
And on and on It is at the same level of the soundtrack of Ken Burn' "Jazz" documentary series in the early 00s, except that "The Apollo" covers more than jazz. Also worth pointing out is the excerpt from the stage reading of "Between The World And Me" from April, , showcasing how the Apollo remains relevant and critical for the African-American community to this day, but frankly also for the rest of us. Thank you for releasing this on CD I am ol' school that way and don't do downloads.
As to the documentary itself, this is the latest documentary from Oscar-winning director Roger Ross Williams, in which he brings us the rich history and significance of the Apollo theater. Albums Singles Videography Tours Awards and honours. Greatest Hits Greatest Hits Vol. Hotel Sessions.
