Muze PNote For a film described as the African-American "When Harry Met Sally," this movie's music producers tapped into a wellspring of neo-soul rather than the Sinatra-like flavorings of Harry Connick, Jr. The result is BROWN SUGAR, a soundtrack packed with a dizzying array of talent drawn from the worlds of soul, hip-hop, and jazz. Among the many highlights are the sensual Erykah Badu/Common duet "Love Of My Life (An Ode To Hip Hop)," prodded along by light beats and feather-light organ fills, Angie Stone's sanctified "Bring Your Heart" and Jill Scott's wispy "Easy Conversation."
Muze PNote Other tasty sounds include the Roots' hard-edged remix of "Act Too (Love Of My Life)," Eric B. and Rakim's classic "Paid In Full (7 Minutes Of Madness Coldcut Remix)," and Cassandra Wilson's delicate cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time." Most impressive is renaissance man Mos Def, who takes time off from starring in the movie to appear on three versions of the title cut: a juicy "Extra Sweet" duet with Faith Evans, a jittery "Raw" take with Talib Kweli (aka Black Star), and a bouncy "Fine" solo turn.
