Diamonds

Diamonds

A film from the golden era of seventies film making (1975), a time of great scores and musicianship  where Roy Budd’s name sits easily with the giants of that decade like Lalo Schifrin, Curtis Mayfield and David Shire.

Diamonds, a crime caper set in London, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv allowed Budd free range to mix Blaxpoitation themes, Jewish folk tradition and his own beloved jazz roots, all mightily topped off by the biggest girl group of the era, Three Degrees, performing the theme.
