“Sunday Morning” Current Theme


This is the theme to Sunday Morning, usually attributed to 18th century German composer Gottfried Reiche and called Abblasen. This music has been used on CBS News Sunday Morning for many years, but they have used three versions. This version, the current one, is performed by jazz musician Wynton Marsalis. It was recorded for Sunday Morning in 2004. It replaced a version of the theme that was used from 1998 to 2004 that was played by former Tonight Show bandleader Doc Severinsen. Before that, a version by Don Smithers was used to open the venerable morning show.
