Note: Sammy had three sisters.The Goldberg, Greenberg and Zodi families
all lived near me. I gave private piano lessons to all the children in all
three families. I met Sammy at Thanksgiving dinner the year he won the acadamy
award for "Call Me Irresponsible". He loved the fact that I taught his nieces and nephews
to play his songs. We remained friends for many years and it was great fun
sharing stories about Sinatra, Sy Oliver, Tommy Dorsey and a few other people that we knew.

midi The Christmas Waltz (Piano Solo with Chords & Lyrics)

Written in 1954, this song went on to join the ranks of christmas favorites as it's lilting
melody echoes through the years in countless seasonal "specials", and in some homes
where people sing around their pianos. Wishing all a Merry Christmas in 3/4 time, we echo
it's sentiments as well.

midi Among My Souvenirs (Piano/Vocal)

Edgar Leslie was a prolific lyricist who collaborated with many top
songwriters including Irving Berlin, Harry Warren, andJoe Burke producing
such hits as "For Me And My Gal". "Moon Over Miami" and "The Moon Was Yellow".
His earlier work from the Ttin Pan Alley" era bore some particulatly catchy titles
including "Gin Gin Ginny Shore", "Since Maggie Dooley Learned The Hooley Hooley"
and "Ooogie, Ooogie Wa Wa". The pensive lyrics of this lovely song reflect a more somber mood.
