Happy Monday, good listeners!
We’re back with another seasonal playlist, this one just might scare kids off your front porch on the 31st.
“Phantom Of The Panther” is a collection of jazz, classical, and soundtrack music. It features spooky tracks from Blacula by Gene Page and the 2021 remake of Candyman by Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. There are jazz cuts by Mulatu Astatke and Duke Ellington.
I’ve also included modern classical works by the likes of Pamela Z, Julius Eastman, and others. And while we usually truck on the works of artists from the African diaspora here at GBN, I’ve included tracks by Phillip Glass from the OG Candyman from 1992 and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ work on HBO’s Watchmen starring Regina King.
And how you gonna not to include a track called “House OF Paincakes” by Marco Beltrami for Wesley Snipes’ Blade II?
Hope you enjoy this stroll through the dark side. Listen with the lights on. Or not.
Until next week, stay safe, sane, and kind.
