"Come Fly With Me": Sammy Cahn on TV, a Centennial Celebration

New York

Sammy Cahn was one of this country’s preeminent lyricists. He extended the Great American Songbook’s tradition into the forties and beyond, writing with two renowned composers, Jule Styne and Jimmy Van Heusen. Cahn’s songs have been heard on countless music specials, notably performed by two of his top interpreters, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Among his classic songs are "All the Way," "Come Fly with Me," "Call Me Irresponsible," "My Kind of Town," and "High Hopes" (which was also used for John Kennedy’s presidential campaign). Our esteemed panel will then explore the enduring popularity of Cahn’s lyrics, and the legacy of Cahn’s art as preserved by television. Michael Feinstein will also be seen on tape discussing his favorite Cahn songs and moments on television. 

Funding for this event is provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
