River of Cy's

June 14, 1929 - November 18, 2004


  1. That was marvelous, TJB.
    Seeing Cy Coleman performing his own tunes was
    an unexpected treat. He puts them across with real style. Excellent composer, and I notice that among the many songs performed by Mabel Mercer at Cleo's in the late 1970s the majority were composed by Cy Coleman.
    There's no greater distinction, in my book.

  2. I love Cy Coleman! These are some great videos! I'm embarrassed to admit it, but Playboy's Penthouse actually looks like how I'd like to spend my weekends. What happened to having fun like an adult? The parties I've been to recently felt like high school functions except for the fact that everyone was drinking legally. Sooo not glamourous.

  3. Cy Colman was truly one of the greats.
    Often overshadowed but bigger names but he wrote some great tunes.

  4. I should add that Joey Heatherton - "I've Got Your Number" on youtube is very cute:
