The Year of Tony Bennett mourns the passing of the composer Marvin Hamlisch on August 7, 2012 at the age of 68.
Mr. Hamlisch composed for both film and Broadway. In addition to the score for A Chorus Line, he composed many memorable songs for films, including The Way We Were for Barbra Streisand. In fact, in 1974, he won two Academy Awards: one for the score of The Sting and one for the song The Way We Were.
In honor of Mr. Hamlisch, the Song of the Day for August 8, 2012, is One, from A Chorus Line, recorded by Tony on the Improv label.
