Film & T.V. Music Supervisor Susan Jacobs, Opinions on Prince & Sam Phillips

Film & TV Music Supervisor Susan Jacobs


This week, our guest is Emmy-winning music supervisor Susan Jacobs. Her job as a music supervisor is to carefully choose tracks for films and television that elevate the visual art to a different level beyond what's written on the page or shown onscreen. Just a few of the movies she's worked on include: She's Gotta Have It, Kansas City, Basquiat, Capote, Little Miss Sunshine, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and I, Tonya. She's really been a go-to music guru for a wide range of directors including David O. Russell, Spike Lee, Robert Altman, M. Night Shyamalan and more. Jim and Greg talk to her about one of her most recent projects, doing the music for HBO's miniseries drama Sharp Objects and about how she got into the business.
