For The Last Black Man in San Francisco (Fanfare), Emile Mosseri composed a new version of San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair) with Joe Talbot, Daniel Herskedal, including vocals from Mike Marshall (the voice in the chorus for Luniz’s “I Got 5 On It"). Mosseri also composed music for Homecoming Season 2, Kajillionaire, and his soundtrack for the upcoming Minari has reached the top of many "best scores of 2020" lists.

Long interview with Mosseri on his score for The Last Black Man in San Francisco.

The soundtrack for Minari hasn't been released yet but you can hear part of it in the movie's trailer; I've watched a screener, and the movie and music is as good as people say.

The soundtrack for LBM in SF is so great. The movie is too; I can't think of a recent low budget film with better cinematography than that one.

Re-listening to the soundtrack now so thanks for reminding me about it.

It’s such a fantastic rendition of this song. Shortly after seeing the film, I listened to a guy on BART spontaneously singing in a voice that was so similar to Mike Marshall’s that I had to do some quick image searches to figure it if it was him.

That rendition has stuck with me more strongly than anything in the movie (and that's not to the discredit of the movie). I earmarked Minari for when it comes out, thank you for sharing.

It was the most gorgeous and moving movie I saw in 2019--Apollo 11 being the only near competitor--and I saw it in a theater with maybe a dozen other people. And weirdly, I watched the trailer again not long ago and it all looked like something from a distantly different time and place.

Absolutely gorgeous. Gives me chills.
