BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga's chart topping duet, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby, demonstrates the timelessness of the Great American Songbook.
"No other country has ever given the rest of the world so many magnificent songs" says Bennett, "They're going to live forever."
Whether on Broadway (Jersey Boys; After Midnight), Television (Opening this year's Tony Awards telecast) or Film (Jersey Boys), in 2014 the music of composer, Jimmy McHugh, continues to captivate audiences around the world. Not to mention that Bennett & Gaga's I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby video is currently one of the most viewed internet clips worldwide.
The Jimmy McHugh Songbook's mantra is "Classic Songs / Modern Sounds" - definitely an apt description of the catalog's hundreds of tunes and the artists that have recorded them. I'm In the Mood For Love, Exactly Like You, Let's Get Lost, On The Sunny Side Of The Street, Where Are You, Don't Blame Me, I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me, When My Sugar Walks Down The Street, & A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening are just a few of the McHugh tunes recorded by a breathtakingly diverse list of artists ranging from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Willie Nelson, Charlie Watts, Billie Holliday, Miles Davis and Chet Baker to The Sex Pistols, Bob Dylan, Brian Ferry, Amy Winehouse, Ringo Starr, Smoky Robinson, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Stephane Grappelli, Art Tatum, Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys, Peggy Lee, Michael Buble, Diana Krall, Spike Jones, The Little Rascals and of course, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.
It has been said that "They're not writing them the way they used to." Time will tell.
