Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - The Hot Spot - Hybrid Stereo SACD

An amalgamation of swampy blues, jazz and rock - all mixed and recorded in a sparse, bloomy and eerie sort of way. This recording is just so damn fine, so airy and warm. And the musician's aboard on this Dennis Hopper film are a who's who,  including Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Roy Rodgers, Earl Palmer and Tim Drummond. This has long been a highly sought after and collectible record among audiophiles. A true demonstration disc.

Originally released in 1990.

Miles Davis, trumpet
Tim Drummond, bass
Bradford Ellis, keyboards
John Lee Hooker, guitar, vocals
Taj Mahal, guitar, vocals
Earl Palmer, drums
Roy Rodgers, slide guitar


extract from AMG review by  Eugene Chadbourne

The Hot Spot soundtrack... presents this great jazz soloist playing over blues grooves as pure as only Hooker could make happen.... A more solid compliment would be to contrast it with other great moments from the trumpeter's career, such as Bitches Brew or Kind of Blue, and the best parts of this soundtrack contain music that is every bit as interesting and profound. As for a Hooker album, there might be others that have better blues songs on them, but this is just about the only recording the bluesman ever did with a really great jazz soloist on it.
