Film editor and director Frank Labrador is a great friend of TJGE and we are pleased beyond words to present his short film honoring the great Mort Lindsey. Here, in Frank's own words, is a description of the short musical film you are about to see:
"The brilliant Mort Lindsey -- orchestrator, musical director, and conductor for some of the biggest artists in show business (including Barbra Streisand and Merv Griffin) -- passed away on Friday, May 4th. The world has lost one of its greatest musicians. This short tribute video focuses on his work on "The Judy Garland Show" CBS TV series from 1963-64. I tried to include all significant moments where Mort appeared on screen and combined three of the overtures he conducted on (in episode 1, 20 and 23) into one. In all, clips were chosen from show #1, 9, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 26.
I send my heartfelt condolences to Mort's wife, Judy Lindsey, and family and friends.
