Jackie Brown: Music from the Miramax Motion Picture is the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's motion picture Jackie Brown. It was originally released on December 9, 1997. The soundtrack emphasises on the soul genre and on sub generes such as funk, r&b and smooth jazz and includes very important names such as Bobby Womack, The Brothers Johnson, Bill Withers, Bloodstone, The Crusaders with Randy Crawford and The Delfonics. The soundtrack also includes dialogue from the motion picture and a lack of typical film score, similar to the other soundtracks of Tarantino films.
