Empire started off so strongly this season, that I had lots to write about. The last TWO episodes have had little jazz in them.
Somehow, this weeks episode has even less jazz/interesting music than the previous week. The whole episode was a little bizarre, perhaps because there was no jazz. Yikes!
Music as a whole, was somewhat scarce throughout the entire thing. During the scenes in the mental institution, we did have some underscoring of “pop” music. A piano was being tuned during an intense conversation in the nightclub. Other than that…we had nothing. Things are definitely bad if I have to mention a piano being tuned.
Better luck next week!
