Cleopatra Jones J.J. Johnson Warner Brothers BS 2719, 1973
Cleopatra Jones album cover

J.J. Johnson teamed up with Millie Jackson and Joe Simon for this soundtrack, another strong album. The big band funk style is typical of other Johnson albums of the time and is particularly good on "Go, Cleo, Go", a track that exhibits all the elements of blaxploitation funk - a massive breakbeat, wah guitar and big horns. The Joe Simon track was a minor hit.

Overall Rating: 4
