Nine Monthly Programs and Nine Newsletters

Coming Up Next: December 8th, 2018

Will Friedwald's CLIP JOINT presents:
Jimmy Van Heusen put more songs in Frank Sinatra's mouth than any other composer. But more than that, he served as the singer's closest and best friend for multiple decades, and he provided The Chairman of the Board with a role model, a template for how to act in his personal life. Sinatra's lifestyle of the 1950s and '60s, his years of high-rolling, cocktail-swigging, and skirt-chasing, were carefully patterned after Van Heusen. This presentation will use rare concert and television videos to show Frank Sinatra performing over a dozen classic songs by his best bud, Jimmy Van Heusen. "The trouble with Sinatra," Sammy Cahn famously said, "is that he thinks he's Van Heusen!" The presentation will include such classic songs as "All The Way," "High Hopes," "Love and Marriage," "Here's That Rainy Day," and "But Beautiful."
