As though being Jimmy Fallon’s in-house band every night and recording two different albums –“ How I Got Over” (Def Jam, 2010) and “Wake Up!” (Columbia/Sony, 2010), the latter made up of covers with John Legend– within a year wasn’t enough for The Roots, we must now add the composition of the soundtrack to “Night Catches Us” to their 2010 roll call, a film premiered at the last Sundance Film Festival that’s now on release in American cinemas. The film, directed by Tanya Hamilton, tells the story of the return of Marcus, a former Black Panther member, to the neighbourhood in Philadelphia where he grew up in the early seventies, at the height of the movement. Black Thought, member of The Roots, appears in the films’ cast, and the soundtrack consists of mainly soul sounds. For now, there are no details known about the possible release of the soundtrack as a record itself. If you want to enjoy the most soulful side of The Roots, you’d have to go and see the film.
