Great Jazz TV Theme Songs

There were a lot of great TV theme songs that were jazz or jazz-influenced. Here are some of my favorites--examples from the '50s through the late '90s.

And there are many, many more. These are just the ones that occurred to me as I was assembling today's blog in a lazy way so that I can spend more time working on my novel AGENTS.

Quincy Jones.

Nelson Riddle.

Henry Mancini.
Hoyt Curtin, composer of many Hanna Barbera cartoon theme songs, including Top Cat and Jonny Quest.

Lionel Newman, brother of film music composer Alfred Newman, uncle of pop music and film music composer Randy Newman.

Yoko Kanno, composer of "Tank!" for Cowboy BeBop (and many other films).

Heck...I could do this all day long.
