Jeff Harnar salutes one of the most prolific songwriters of the last century, Sammy Cahn.  With 26 Academy Award Nominated songs, including 4 Oscars, an Emmy and Broadway scores, Sammy Cahn is perhaps best remembered as the lyricist who put more words into Frank Sinatra’s mouth than any other songwriter.   Jeff Harnar’s “SAMMY CAHN ALL THE WAY” is a musical scrapbook of Hollywood, Broadway, World War II and those swinging Rat Pack hits that have underscored American lives for decades.
