"Come Blow Your Horn"

Sinatra with Tony Bill

I did a recap (part 1, part 2, and part 3) of Come Blow Your Horn (1963) about a year ago, so this is a repost in a sense. The title song was arranged and conducted by the great Nelson Riddle, and written by the geniuses behind many Sinatra classics, Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. Cahn was the wordsmith, Van Heusen wrote the notes.

Being in Come Blow Your Horn helped Bill's career for at least a year...
