“I’ve always believed that in life, what you keep in your mind is what you draw to yourself.” That’s how trumpeter/composer Terence Blanchard explains the title of his 20th album, Magnetic, which finds a stunning variety of sounds and styles pulled together by the irresistible force of Blanchard’s vision.

That credo stems directly from Blanchard’s ... Read more in Amazon's Terence Blanchard Store

Editorial Reviews

Spike Lee's powerful rumination on the last 24 hours of freedom of a young convicted felon (Edward Norton) before he serves a seven-year prison sentence that will forever change his life is charged with melancholy regrets--and slim hopes of redemption. Longtime Lee collaborator Terence Blanchard's haunting score was deservedly nominated for a Golden Globe for the stark, sophisticated way it colors a challenging story with music that's at once haunting and achingly introspective. Blanchard's orchestral music here may at first seem like his most obvious bowing to symphonic film-scoring traditions. But as it masterfully turns on a difficult emotional axis of despair and apprehension, its sad string passages and wordless arias can evoke both the Celtic and the Middle Eastern, then melt into loping jazz signatures in a heartbeat. It's a brooding, elegantly sophisticated soundtrack that pays only occasional tribute to Blanchard's rich jazz accomplishments, but one that dramatically underscores his true range and dramatic potential as a film composer. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars The OTHER songs from the film... May 31, 2003
By Nick O.
Format:Audio CD
Blanchard's score is beautiful and haunting, a perfect match for the film that also stands well on its own. But for those of you seeking the other songs from the film, here they are: song, artist, album. If you can't get all these albums, I think your best bet is Essential Mix: Classic Edition by Grandmaster Flash, which features two songs from the film and is a great dance / party CD overall.
"Warm It Up Kane" -- Big Daddy Kane -- Very Best of Big Daddy Kane
"Flava in Ya Ear" -- Craig Mack -- Project: Funk Da World (also available as CD single)
"Put the Music Where Your Mouth Is" -- Olympic Runners (note: one of the songs played early on at the club)
"White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" -- Grandmaster & Melle Mel -- Message from the Beat Street: Best Of
"Cavern" -- Grand Master Flash / Liquid Liquid -- available on: Grandmaster Flash, Essential Mix: Classic Edition (note: this song, which you can hear during the club scene, is the one played on the film's trailer)
"Bra" -- Cymande -- available on: Cymande and on Grandmaster Flash's Essential Mix: Classic Edition (note: played during the bathroom kiss scene)
"Dove" -- Cymande -- Cymande
"The Message" -- Cymande -- Cymande
"The Fuse" -- Bruce Springsteen -- The Rising

I don't get the beef from so many concerning this CD. The music is subtle mood film work and it deftly fills in the spaces and fleshes out the film in question, which- while far from being a 'great' film, or even one of Norton's or Lee's best- is a damn nice watch. Ok, it's not Troubleman or Superfly, but it's well constructed and taut. Good music to idle about the house to- or drive to. It's just a sweet lil soundtrack.
Ever get the feeling that Norton has a long list of 'Directors I need to work with,' and he's working his way down that sucker? Just me, eh?
OK- Now then, if you're looking for the DJ hits from the club scene and about half the hits in here seem to be digging for them... as everyone and their grandma has mentioned, you should go buy the Cymande CD- it's only about 13 bucks or so in here. Get the full-blown 'Cymande,' Cd. The song Bra is the one from the paquin/Hoffman kissing scene in the bathroom (and It's been sampled by damn near everybody- most notably in De la Soul's 'Change in Speak,' track 3 off their first album- 3 feet High and Rising). Dove is the song you can barely hear from the scene wherein Norton and the Ukrainian mobsters talk in the basement (most notably used as an interpolation in The Fugees 'Family Business' off their seminal album The Score...) And yes, The Message is in there too and it too has been done to def by the hip-hop community.
I give Blanchard a two-thumbs up for this understated work. So many soundtracks beat you in the head with pathos- soft tinkling sad pianos and lush swelling strings- they scream- YOU MUST CRY HERE!!!! YOU WILL BE HAPPPY NOW!!!! There's no subtlety and that bothers the hell out of me- I hate to feel like I'm being molested by a composer. Blanchard never panders, he whispers and insinuates- makes for a good listen and a nice watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Cymande January 29, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I pleasantly surprised that Cymande's music was heavily featured
during the Club scene of 25th hour. Not only was the song "Bra" featured during Anna Paquin's close shot when she was dancng through the hallway, but so was "Dove" and "The Message". Its interesting how the DJ of the so called club was said to be the hottest thing around. He simply cut and scratched through 3 famous Cymande songs. All these songs were hits in 1972. That's 31 years ago people. But the songs sound fresher today than ever. Cymande is simply one of the best funk fusion bands
ever to record. Spike Lee knows it. I know it. And know maybe if your paying attention, you know it too. Check out Cymande "THE SOUL OF RASTA" and get yourself lifted with this newest "best of" collection.

If your are wondering about the great music from the Club scene with Anna Paquin dancing in the hallway to "Bra," and the DJ spinning the track "the message."

And the track "Dove," playing in the background while Ed Norton visits with the Ukranian mobsters in the basement of the club.

Well, All these tracks are by Cymande (pronounced sah-mahn-day)

This music has been remastered and just recently released on an album called - Renegades of Funk. This album is completely remastered and has some unreleased bonus tracks. Finally an album is available that does this great band justice. It also has some great photos of the fusion funk, jazz, soul and reggae breakbeat band from the early seventies. Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Score - but where's the Soundtrack? February 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD recently because I loved the score to the movie but also because I loved the music featured in the movie. I was disappointed to hear that only the score was featured - I'm dying for the Soundtrack and can't find it - if anyone knows where/what to find please let me know by email.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not to knit-pick November 12, 2004
By Mark T
Format:Audio CD
I believe the person who wrote the review about their professor liking the score was referring to Berklee, as in the highly competitive College of Music in Boston. I realize it's not Yale or Berkeley but that persons comment can be considered somewhat relevant. It's hard to believe someone who grew up in New Haven could be unaware of the Boston school, not to mention a Yale grad unable to recognize the different spelling.

Just listen to the CD, it's a great score!

I was immediately taken by the score for this film. Music is one of the most important elements in film used to convey mood and emotion and I find this score succeeds brilliantly.
