A basketball soundtrack – but one that features a great array of cuts from the American soul underground! We're used to b-ball scores that are filled with hip hop tracks and beats, but this one's put together by the folks at Purpose Records, and features work by their own artists Monet, Cooly's Hot Box, and Tortured Soul – plus a great range of other artists who share a similar vibe! There's a really positive, progressive feel to the set – and in a way, the album works even better as an overview of some of the best in current soul, than it does as the soundtrack to a documentary on New York hoops. Titles include "The Road" by Darien, "G-hetto" by Maya Azucena, "K-Leg" by Antibalas, "Look Who's Got Ya Back" by Julie Dexter
, "Surrender" by Robin Small, "Just Believe" by Carmen Rogers, "Afterlife" by Cooly's Hot Box, "Determined" by Patrice Roberts, "Holla" by Jigmasters, "Open Up" by Free Radicalz, "Welcome To My Ghetto" by Peven Everett, "You Found A Way" by Tortured Soul, and "Essence" by Monet.
