In a roundabout way, this set not only pays tribute to Sammy Cahn, but also his collaborators.

Seven of the tracks were co-written with Jimmy Van Heusen and have become iconic songbook standards including "The Second Time Around," "Call Me Irresponsible," and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head." They also wrote several tunes made popular by Sinatra: "Come Fly with Me," "The Tender Trap," and "All the Way." Cahn's partnership with Jule Styne is also highlighted with "I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," and "I Fall in Love Too Easily." The 2013 release of It's Magic: The Songs of Sammy Cahn coincides with the modern crooner's extended New York gig, succeeding the late vocalist Bobby Short at the Café Carlyle, where the great American songbook has been celebrated for several decades.
