Saturday Score Selection #8: They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!

They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!
score by Quincy Jones (1970)

Seeing as last Monday was Martin Luther King day, and I played some music from this film, I thought I'd make some of the tracks I didn't play available for download. Why? Cause Quincy Jones is a bigger bad ass than MISTER Tibbs, that's why damnit! Before Sidney Poitier was the soft spoken guest on Oprah, he played in many movies, and this one just happened to be a sequel to the popular In the Heat of the Night (1967). The twist? It's shot like a blacksploitation film! Ooooh yeah! We all know who can churn out a funky beat faster than you can say Beat It or Billy Jean...and that's Quincy Jones. So this week I'm leaving you with a double download, one funky Quincy classic, and the other a laid back bluesy number. Together, they capture the whole movie I think. Enjoy!
