    Songwriter Randy Klein

    About Randy Klein
    Randy Klein's work spans jazz writing, performing and improvising, and composing for film and theater. This multifaceted New Yorker has released several albums of his own original music; the 1993 debut Jazzheads generated wide acclaim for its lyrics and innovative melodies. A gifted songwriter with two gold records to his credit (for songs recorded by soul/R&B diva Millie Jackson), Klein has received numerous awards for his film and drama soundtracks. Klein was honored by the 1995 Southern Regional Emmy Awards (The National Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences (NATAS)) for his work with PBS children's educational projects.
