You may not recognize Lew Spence's name, but you have probably heard his music. Spence composed the title tune for my all-time favorite Sinatra album, NICE 'N' EASY.
Other Sinatra fans may choose more serious Sinatra albums, such as IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS, as his best work, but for me, it's the bubbly, romantic NICE 'N' EASY, which also includes my all-time favorite Sinatra recording, "How Deep is the Ocean?"
Spence also composed "Sleep Warm," which was the title of perhaps my favorite Dean Martin album -- which happens to have been conducted by Sinatra. Sinatra himself also recorded "Sleep Warm."
Rather remarkable that the same composer wrote the title songs for two favorite albums by two very favorite singers.
