The hilarious part about The Graduate album for me is that I wasn’t sure why I was hired. I got there and Paul had been working on new songs for some time, but Mike almost had the picture cut with existing Simon & Garfunkel material. The few things that I wrote were little source-music pieces.
Jazz pianist and composer, Dave Grusin, on contributing to The Graduate soundtrack.
Grusin specifically composed these “little source-music pieces”: “The Singleman Foxtrot”, “Sunporch Cha-Cha-Cha”, “On the Strip”, “The Folks”, “A Great Effect”, and “Whew”.
Posted in celebration of the 46th anniversary of Simon & Garfunkel and Dave Grusin’s The Graduate soundtrack, which was a #1 album nine consecutive weeks on April 6, 1968.
