This time we are focusing on jazz-infused soundtracks that received Academy Awards nominations for Best Original Score in a Feature Film, because jazz does a great job a propelling a movie story forward. Kudos to Laura Karpman, the composer of the soundtrack for American Fiction and Branford Marsalis for the soundtrack of Rustin, two scores that have a life of their own even without the images they were was meant to accompany.

Happy listening!
