Filmed in one night, Man of the Year incorporates the specially crafted music of David Kates and Jeffery Silverman. These select jazz cuts portray both the darker and the lighter side of life. To be sure, they are in no way ordinary. Check out the sounds of the John Novello Quartet as they lay down some of the background music for what may arguably be the last independent film starring the late John Ritter.

"The job was to provide a rhythm and an underscore to the drama and the comedy as it unfolded, to keep things moving without getting in the way, sometimes lead, sometimes foreshadow.
"I use music as another member of the cast. The music that David and Jeffrey brought to the process, the character of that music, helped create the mood and the pace and coloration for the kind of piece we were making."
-- Straw Weisman, Producer and Director
