Beloved Songwriter: Jimmy Van Heusen

Air date:

We asked Honolulu jazz singer Jimmy Borges to intro a featured program airing tomorrow (Wed., Aug. 13, 2014, 8:00 pm): Jimmy Van Heusen: Swingin’ with Frank & Bing. Van Heusen wrote so many of those great songs for which Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby were known. Jimmy B., a former Board member of PBS Hawaii, has the same elegance in song phrasing as we heard from Ol’ Blue Eyes.

On tomorrow’s program, you’ll also see Frank Sinatra Jr., Harry Crosby, Tony Bennett, Woody Allen, Angie Dickinson, Shirley MacLaine, John Pizzarelli and others share their memories of Van Heusen.
