Composed By Sammy Cahn and arranged for combo by Al Levy
In 1959 came Sinatra's film A Hole in the Head, for which Sammy Cahn wrote "High Hopes". The song won Cahn his third Oscar, and later (with a revised lyric) became John F. Kennedy's campaign song. A few years later I taught all of Sammy's nieces and nephews how to play the piano. His sisters lived on Long Island and one niece I remember teaching lived in Queens N.Y.
Medium Swing Arrangement of this classic tune
This is a performance at the Las Vegas Club in Syosset which
demonstrates again the versatility of the charts.
I created the "fade in" and "fade out." The tape was nine minutes long.
It is possible to segue into or out of any arrangement. On the tape we segue in, play the wriiten parts to the "segue ending", then play another tune
instead of playing the "out " ending or coda.
