The Norman Gimbel Songbook

The Norman Gimbel Songbook

From his 1961 hit “Bluesette” with Toots Thieleman, to composing the English lyrics to “The Girl from Ipanema,” to winning the Best Song Oscar for “It Goes like It Goes” from the movie Norma Rae, to composing the memorable theme songs for TV shows such as Laverne and Shirley and The Love Boat, composer Norman Gimbel has created a rich and diverse catalog of American standards. This superb P/V/G collection – containing 50 career-spanning songs selected by Gimbel himself! – also features a foreword written by his four children, a biography, great photos, and a chronological index of titles. Songs include: Bluesette • The Girl from Ipanema • Happy Days • How Insensitive • I Will Follow Him • I Will Wait for You • It Goes like It Goes • Killing Me Softly with His Song • Live for Life • Making Our Dreams Come True • Meditation • Ready to Take a Chance Again • So Nice (Summer Samba) • Sway • Sweet Happy Life • Traces • Watch What Happens • and more.
