NEAL HEFTI was one of the most original and influential composers and arrangers of the 20th Century. Beginning as arranger for Woody Herman he went on to composing and arranging for Count Basie and Frank Sinatra. He wrote for film (The Odd Couple, Barefoot In The Park, Harlow, Sex & The Single Girl) and for TV (the phenomenal success of his “Batman” theme).
I wrote and hosted this show for my BBC Radio 2 series “The Arrangers” in 2001 (produced by Elizabeth Clark) and am happy to make this available for a new audience.
This is killer stuff and you only get this with Radio Richard.
