Johnny Mandel Composer/Arranger

Johnny Mandel

Academy Award winning composer of “Emily”, “Suicide is Painless” (the theme from “M*A*S*H”) and the song Jack Sheldon’s trumpet introduced to the world, “The Shadow of Your Smile”, Johnny is one of the giants of American music. His “Ring a Ding Ding” charts for Sinatra help re-energize Frank’s sound. He is a composer and arranger of the first order and has lately added band leader to his remarkable resume.
