Willie Dynamite is a 1973 American blaxploitation film directed by Gilbert Moses and starring Roscoe Orman, Diana Sands, Thalmus Rasulala, Joyce Walker, and was released by Universal Pictures. The eponymous Willie Dynamite is a pimp in New York City, who strives to be number one in the city. As he is trying to do so, a social worker named Cora, is trying to change his ways - as well as those of the women who work for him - for the better. It was the first film produced by the Zanuck-Brown Company.
Martha Reeves sang the title song on the soundtrack album. J. J. Johnson composed and produced the original soundtrack.
The soundtrack includes the heavy break “Parade Strut” within other great breaks, heavy horn sections and dope arrangements, though still totally underrated.
