The Color Purple Soundtrack - Quincy Jones

The Color Purple Soundtrack - Quincy Jones

Add to Cart

The Steven Spielberg-directed classic, The Color Purple, was just as important for its score as it was for the story and cinematic accomplishments. Quincy Jones added to his list of movie score credits by producing the score for this film and even bringing actors into the fold, one of which being none other than Oprah Winfrey. With orchestration that is at times dreamy and others bluesy and striking, Jones was able to accurately match the mood and tone of the film while telling a story all his own as well.
