This week’s intro features the wonders of composer Jonathan Wolff, best known for creating the slap bass guitar and percussion music between scenes on the television series Seinfeld.

Renato Falaschi – BREEZIN
Through Facebook Renato and the Doc chatted through email the other week.
As you will know this is the famous GB track and some of you may know that Donny Osmond has also given us a great version of this classic. From Renato’s MySpage we read: Born and raised in Bari, Italy, Renato Falaschi was inspired by music he was exposed to as a child, and began playing the piano “by ear “at a very early age. He began formal piano studies at the age of eight at Bari’s Niccolo Piccinni Conservatory of music and this he continued off and on into his teens, shifting to a focus on organ, guitar and arrangement for big band and composition of which he obtained his masters at the Jazz University in Terni. In 1990 he obtained a degree in classical piano at Enrico Duni’s conservatory of music in Matera (Ba).
