In Episode 3, "Doin' It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC" co-directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau discuss their approach towards the film's music score, which includes songs by the Blackbyrds, Eddie Palmieri, The Roots, Jurassic 5, 20Syl (C2C/Hocus Pocus), and the Quantic Soul Orchestra, among others.
The first-time filmmakers succeeded in providing a fresh and diverse soundscape, ranging from World to Jazz to Latin to Afro, incorporating indie acts like Tato Torres Y Yerbabuena as well as extremely well-known ones, including nine-time Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri (who wrote completely original compositions inspired by the film's action, which he had never done in his career before).
"The film was made by a community of ballplayers," says co-director Bobbito Garcia, who was the film's music supervisor. "The score was made by a community of musicians, who were really supportive and showed us a lot of love."
