THE DIRECTOR TALKS TO NELSON GEORGE ABOUT ICONIC MUSICAL MOMENTS IN HIS FILMS

Not only is Spike Lee a firm fixture in the movie-making world for now more than 30 years, but he’s also provided some of the most memorable musical moments on film. From the Public Enemy-soundtracked opening credits for Do the Right Thing to coaxing an entire album out of Stevie Wonder for Jungle Fever to “Crooklyn Dodgers,” the career-defining scores of Terence Blanchard, and Questlove’s nod to Mo’ Better Blues in the title of his bestselling book, Lee’s work as a director is inextricably intertwined with music.

Most recently, Lee chronicled Michael Jackson’s coronation as king of pop with a documentary titled Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall. The legendary filmmaker will sit down for a lengthy conversation with Nelson George (who previously spoke to D’Angelo during RBMA’s 2014 NYC festival) about how music has inspired him and the part it has played in his films.
