NOTES

"Jimmy Van Heusen was an architect of melody. When we were writing together, if I would ask him to add even a grace note to the song, he would sit down and write a whole new melody. He was also one of the world's greatest swingers. He used to joke that he ought to get more than 50 percent of a song because he spent so much time with Sinatra."--Sammy Cahn (NY Times obituary, 2/8/90)

He was elected to the Songwriters Hall of Fame when it was founded (1971).
