Neal Hefti, 1922-2008

Odd Couple TV title card

Composer and arranger Neal Hefti has died at the age of 85. Most of his work was for jazz albums, but he did some work for the screen, both the big screen and the little screen. He might be best-known for the theme to the 1960s TV series Batman, but his jazzy theme to The Odd Couple can't be far behind. Other movies he scored include Robert Redford's Barefoot in the Park, and Jack Lemmon's How to Murder Your Wife.
