Bob Wilber did the music. The CD
"Cotton Club, The, Original motion picture sound track"
Geffen M5G 24062

was available last time I looked, which was some time ago.

One of my favorite tracks is Lonnette McKee's "Ill Wind". That's a terrific
tune, was, along with "Stormy Weather", Lena Horne's first record.

It's also on CDs by Ted Des Plantes and Mike Henebry.
