Total Duration: 00:43:08. I think I had simply assumed that it was a Terrence Blanchard score. And a quick glance at IMDB reveals that Bill Lee composed the scores for several of Spike's early films! How did I overlook this?! I appreciate the opportunity to finally listen to this score on its own (apart from the film) and correct my misperception. 03-23-2018, 02:26 PM #8.

In my opinion, this score by Bill Lee ranks right up there with the greats. The amazing thing is that this music isn't fifty or sixty years old. This masterpiece was created in the late 1980's when jazz was supposed to be on its deathbed. Do The Right Thing: Original Score is both unerringly beautiful and unexpectedly timeless. It holds up just as well today as it did over twenty years ago. From beginning to end it is joyous, introspective and, in the case of such pieces as "How Long?" and "Malcolm and Martin", utterly heartrending.
