"On Broadway" is a song written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil in collaboration with the team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The song was a hit for The Drifters in 1963, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has been covered by many artists such as George Benson, Eric Carmen, Bobby Darin, Percy Faith, Tom Jones, Johnny Mathis, James Taylor, Gary Numan, Tito Puente, Lou Rawls, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sly & The Family Stone, Neil Young, and Widespread Panic, among others. George Benson's version of "On Broadway", from his 1978 album "Weekend In L.A.", recorded live at the West Hollywood Roxy Theater, was an even bigger hit than The Drifters' original, hitting #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and getting substantial adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio airplay ever since. It won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance. This channel is dedicated to the classic jazz music you've loved for years.
