In an era of saxophone lead-ins, Jonathan Wolff’s slap bass Seinfeld theme was a true original. In a career littered with well-known scores from some of TV’s most popular sitcoms, it hardly stands alone.
This Tuesday, March 7th, pick the brain of an iconic composer—the man behind the music of over 75 primetime network series, including Seinfeld, Will & Grace, and King of Queens. Jonathan Wolff joins the M.I.T. Lecture series for “The Seinfeld Music Guy,” an evening of masterful piano-playing, storytelling, and Q&A.
Born in Kentucky, but boasting a prolific Hollywood career, Wolff divulges a rags-to-riches tale which lands somewhere between Dickensian and ideal-American. His insider knowledge of the Hollywood musical landscape is both inspiring and enlightening, and he’s been known to leave audience members channeling their inner Oliver Twist—i.e., “Please sir, may I have some more…riveting stories?”
Those who will delight: Aspirant musicians, Costanza acolytes, and Horatio Alger enthusiasts alike.
