Music for Walter

During the last week of January, three jazz musicians at Oberlin College's Conservatory of Music recorded an original score, by Matt Adomeit, for "Walter": episode 12 of The Amerikans. "Walter" stars Walter Frey, a funeral director, psychologist, cosmetician, and organist from Lorain, Ohio. The score, says Adomeit, "was inspired by a bluesy piece by Bill Frisell, called "Outlaws," which appears on the album "With Dave Holland and Elvin Jones." To achieve this sound, Adomeit recruited drummer Nate Friedman and guitarist Matt Gold. The session was recorded by Sound Designer Eli Stine, who has does the sound design on over 10 episodes of The Amerikans. "Walter" will premier this March in Lorain, Ohio.
