I love the soundtrack, really love the ska and rock steady music that was used in the movie. One song, I’ll call it the limbo song- was used twice in the movie but doesn’t appear on the sound track. Can you or anyone share with me the name of the song? It sounds like Tommy Mccook or Roland Alphonso.. has that tenor sax slow rythm. Thanks for your help
