It is always gratifying to have your work recognized by folks who toil in the same world as you do, and I’m very flattered to have been nominated for a World Soundtrack Award this year. I’ll be attending the event in Ghent, Belgium and giving a talk about tv music on October 18th. Looking forward to it -…/take…/05-10-2017/2190

The Blacklist Returns And Original Score Now Available

The Blacklist returns to NBC for its 5th season at a new time – Wednesdays at 8pm beginning next week September 27th. To celebrate, with help from my good friends at SONY Pictures Television and Madison Gate Records, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve released a score soundtrack that covers my music from seasons 1-4. 26 tracks in all — it releases today and is available now! No songs, purely score. Everything was completely remixed for the soundtrack and in many cases the original cues have been augmented and improved.
Big thanks to my friend of more than 20 years, Greg Laporta, who co-wrote a number of these tracks with me. Thanks also to music editor Roger Kosteck as well as Michael Traylor, James Saez, and Riley Smith for help getting the soundtrack together.
To sample or purchase it is available at iTunes and Amazon now!

‘The Disaster Artist’ Teaser

The first teaser trailer for “The Disaster Artist” has arrived! I loved working on this and I’m so glad it is getting a strong theatrical release during awards season because James Franco absolutely kills it — both in front of and behind the camera.…/disaster-artist-teaser-james-franco-tommy-…/

‘Better Call Saul’ on vinyl

For those asking about pre-ordering my Better Call Saul score soundtrack when it comes out next month on vinyl, here is the link. Order soon because this initial red vinyl version will go quickly. Ignore the release date, it is incorrect – the correct date is still June 9. Here is the link, which may only work for USA customers, I’m not sure:

Better Call Saul

and here is everything I know about it -
