Throwback Thursday: Coming-Of-Age Comedy ‘Superbad’, Score By Lyle Workman

Somehow Workman managed to gather together a virtual super-group of jazz and funk artists to perform his score, including bass legend Bootsy Collins, drummer Clyde Stubblefield and rhythm guitarist Catfish Collins. It’s nothing like a traditional score, instead playing more like a succession of rock-funk instrumentals, but in and of themselves, the pieces are great. – Jonathan Broxton, Movie Music UK

This week, we take a look at acclaimed coming-of-age film, Superbad starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen and Bill Hader, from the producers who brought you The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Talledega Nights! Directed by Greg Mottola (Daytrippers, Adventureland), the film earned 11 film awards and 24 nominations including the ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards’ “Top Box Office Films” win for Composer Lyle Workman (“Love” on Netflix, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Stand Up Guys, Yes Man), and two Critic’s Choice Award nominations for Best Comedy Movie and Best Young Actor for Michael Cera.
