Notes By Sinatra

He is a personality, first and foremost – warm, gregarious, overbearing at times, stimulating, real. He's all these things.

"By trade, he is a songwriter – gifted, expressive, original, commercial, tireless, funny. All come out in his lyrics. I've never known, never sung a Cahn song that didn't say something. Maybe a few words or a line or two, but he made his point. Hell, they don't call this Shelley of Seward Park Junior High School from New York's lower East Side the poet laureate of Beverly Hills for nothing, do they?
