Johnny Mercer

Great American Songbook :
The Lyrical Johnny Mercer

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’ve come here tonight to sing songs written by the great Johnny Mercer. Mercer wrote the words you’ve heard performed by Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Tony Bennett, Hoagy Carmichael - in short, American singers of world renown.

Mercer was a master craftsman. He wrote lyrics from his heart, and they are a joy to sing.

Derrek Wayne sings "The Lyrical Johnny Mercer" featuring Great American Songbook standards and classic Hollywood hits, helmed by Wayne at the baby grand piano. With jazz orchestra. 45 minutes.
