1970s movie soundtracks are great. At the time funk was hip and jazz elements hasn’t completely been eliminated from (American) mainstream film scores. Jazz & funk, brass & Rhodes piano, fancy chords & wah-wah, all of ’em matches made in heaven.
These elements are mostly evident in countless awesome blaxploitation movies. Coffy, Foxy Brown and Shaft, just to name a few.
70S THRILLS got its inspiration from car chases, mean fistfights, flamboyant pimps, ruthless pushers and overall badassery of those movies.
