CHRYSALIS MUSIC GROUP USA begins administering the legendary CY COLEMAN song catalog this month. The indie publisher takes over the worldwide exploitation and collection rights from WARNER/CHAPPELL MUSIC under a deal that became effective in JANUARY.
COLEMAN, a member of the ASCAP Songwriters Hall of Fame and winner of many GRAMMY and TONY awards, was initially a celebrated jazz and classical pianist before moving on to his monumental career in popular music. His contribution to the American songbook spans six decades and includes classic standards such as "Witchcraft," "Big Spender," "The Best Is Yet To Come" and "Hey Look Me Over," as performed by such artists as FRANK SINATRA, TONY BENNETT, NAT KING COLE, PEGGY LEE, SARAH VAUGHN, JUDY GARLAND and BARBARA STREISAND.
