# I've got the world on a string

APPLAUSE

0:00:120:00:13

# And I'm sitting on a rainbow

0:00:130:00:16

# Got the string around my finger

0:00:180:00:24

# What a world, what a life, I'm in love

0:00:250:00:29

# I've got a song that I sing

0:00:310:00:33

# I can make the rain go

0:00:330:00:35

# Any time I move my finger

0:00:350:00:39

# Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love?

0:00:390:00:42

# Life's a wonderful thing

0:00:440:00:47

# Long as I hold the string

0:00:470:00:50

# I'd be a silly so-and-so

0:00:510:00:54

# If I should ever let it go

0:00:540:00:56

# I've got the world on a string

0:00:580:01:01

# And I'm sitting on a rainbow

0:01:010:01:03

# Got the string around my finger

0:01:030:01:06

# What a world, what a life, I'm in love

0:01:060:01:11

# Life's a grabbing thing

0:01:150:01:17

# As long as I hold the string

0:01:190:01:22

SONG: "Fly Me To The Moon"

0:01:590:02:03

I loved watching my dad perform.

0:02:130:02:15

He had such confidence and presence.

0:02:150:02:18

He was a man who led with his heart,

0:02:180:02:20

which is why I think he touched so many people.

0:02:200:02:24

Not long after we lost him, I compared him to a Redwood.

0:02:240:02:27

He had a place on this planet -

0:02:270:02:30

to be, to stand tall and to sing.

0:02:300:02:33

SONG: "That's Life"

0:02:350:02:37

# Did you hear about it? That's life

0:02:390:02:41

# That's what all the people say

0:02:440:02:46

# You're riding high in April

0:02:480:02:51

# Shot down in May

0:02:510:02:54

# But I know I'm gonna Change that tune

0:02:540:02:58

# When I'm back on top

0:03:020:03:04

# On top in June

0:03:040:03:07

# I said, that's life

0:03:080:03:10

# Funny as it may seem

0:03:130:03:16

# Some people get their kicks

0:03:170:03:21

# From stepping on dreams

0:03:210:03:24

# But I don't let it, let it get me down

0:03:240:03:27

# Cos this old world, It keeps going around

0:03:300:03:35

# I've been a puppet, a pauper, A pirate, a poet

0:03:370:03:42

# A pawn and a king

0:03:420:03:45

# I've been up and down and over and out

0:03:450:03:49

# And I know one thing

0:03:490:03:51

# Each time I find myself

0:03:510:03:56

# Flat on my face

0:03:560:03:59

# I pick myself up and get back in the race

0:03:590:04:05

# That's life

0:04:050:04:08

# I tell you, I can't deny it

0:04:100:04:12

# I thought of quitting, baby

0:04:150:04:18

# But my heart just won't buy it

0:04:180:04:20

# And if I didn't think it was worth a single try

0:04:200:04:25

# Why, I'd jump right on a big bird

0:04:270:04:30

# And then I'd fly

0:04:300:04:32

# I've been a puppet, a pauper, A pirate, a poet

0:04:340:04:39

# A pawn and a king

0:04:390:04:42

# I've been up and down And over and out

0:04:420:04:46

# But I, I know one thing

0:04:460:04:49

# Each time I find myself

0:04:490:04:52

# Laying flat on my face

0:04:520:04:56

# I pick myself up And get back in the race

0:04:560:05:02

# Yeah, that's life

0:05:020:05:04

# That's life, and I can't deny it

0:05:070:05:09

# Many times I thought Of quitting, baby

0:05:110:05:14

# But my heart won't buy it

0:05:140:05:17

# But if there's nothing shaking Come July

0:05:170:05:22

# I'm going to roll myself up

0:05:240:05:28

# In a big ball

0:05:280:05:31

# And die...

0:05:310:05:38

# Oh, yeah... #

0:05:400:05:45

APPLAUSE

0:05:450:05:49

Every so often, Dad would bring home

0:05:500:05:53

a first pressing of his latest recording.

0:05:530:05:56

Nancy and I would curl up either side of him

0:05:560:05:59

on our big red sofa in the living room,

0:05:590:06:01

while my brother manned the turntable.

0:06:010:06:04

Somehow, I innately knew to sit still and respect the music.

0:06:040:06:08

This was a big event in our household.

SONG: "Moonlight In Vermont"

0:06:110:06:14

# Pennies in a stream

0:06:150:06:19

# Falling leaves, a sycamore

0:06:220:06:27

# Moonlight in Vermont

0:06:300:06:34

0:06:370:06:43

0:06:450:06:50

# Snow light in Vermont

0:06:530:06:57

# Telegraph cables

0:07:000:07:03

# They sing down the highway

0:07:030:07:08

# As they travel each bend In the road

0:07:080:07:14

# People who meet

0:07:160:07:20

# In this romantic setting

0:07:200:07:23

# Are so hypnotised by the lovely...

0:07:230:07:31

# Evening summer breeze

0:07:310:07:36

# The warbling of the meadowlark

0:07:400:07:45

# Moonlight in Vermont

0:07:480:07:53

# Telegraph cables

0:07:560:07:59

# How they sing down the highway

0:07:590:08:04

ORCHESTRAL WIND INSTRUMENTS

0:09:260:09:29

Yeah.

0:09:290:09:31

Can you play the coda one more time

0:09:440:09:46

and listen to the two bars before the end and the strings?

0:09:460:09:49

Very few people saw my father at work in the recording studio.

0:09:490:09:52

He would often invite friends, but never news cameras.

0:09:520:09:56

Here is a rare glimpse.

0:09:560:09:58

There were too many Ps popping in the past dates we did.

0:09:580:10:03

Can you clear those up a little bit?

0:10:030:10:05

ENGINEER: If they don't thump. If they're a real thump, I can't.

0:10:050:10:08

Well, I don't thump, I just..

0:10:080:10:10

I'm a sneaky P popper.

0:10:100:10:12

-I won't stop you.

-All right.

0:10:130:10:15

# But now the days are short

0:10:160:10:20

# I'm in the autumn of the year

0:10:220:10:25

I remember Pop's absolute command when recording.

0:10:250:10:29

Everyone silent, all eyes fixed on him.

0:10:290:10:31

-Shall we try one?

-Yeah.

0:10:310:10:34

Can we make one?

0:10:340:10:35

SONG: "It Was A Very Good Year"

0:10:370:10:42

# When I was 17

0:10:500:10:56

# It was a very good year

0:10:560:11:02

# It was a very good year

0:11:020:11:06

# For small-town girls And soft summer nights

0:11:060:11:12

# We'd hide from the lights

0:11:150:11:19

# On the village green

# It was a very good year

0:12:010:12:05

# For city girls Who lived up the stair

0:12:050:12:12

# With all that perfumed hair

0:12:140:12:20

# And it came undone

0:12:210:12:26

# When I was 21

0:12:280:12:34

# When I was 35

0:12:490:12:53

# It was a very good year

0:12:560:13:01

# It was a very good year

0:13:030:13:06

# For blue-blooded girls Of independent means

0:13:060:13:15

# We'd ride in limousines

0:13:150:13:20

# Their chauffeurs would drive

0:13:210:13:26

# When I was 35

0:13:260:13:30

# But now the days are short

0:13:500:13:55

# I'm in the Autumn of the year

0:13:580:14:03

# And now I think of my life

0:14:050:14:09

# As vintage wine From fine old kegs

0:14:090:14:16

# From the brim to the dregs

0:14:180:14:23

# It poured sweet and clear

0:14:260:14:30

# It was a very good year

0:14:320:14:36

MUSIC FADES TO A FINISH

0:14:530:14:57

-ENGINEER: You have to hear it.

-What's the time on that?

0:15:020:15:06

How long?

0:15:060:15:07

-3.20?

-4.12.

0:15:100:15:12

4.12?!

0:15:120:15:14

That's longer than the first act of Hamlet!

SONG: "Witchcraft"

0:15:180:15:22

0:15:220:15:24

APPLAUSE

0:15:240:15:26

# That sly come-hither stare

0:15:260:15:29

0:15:290:15:33

# And I've got no defence for it

0:15:350:15:39

# The heat is too intense for it

0:15:390:15:43

# What good would common sense For it do?

0:15:430:15:46

APPLAUSE

0:17:340:17:37

Dad was like a camp fire -

0:17:390:17:41

he attracted you with a particular energy and warmth.

0:17:410:17:44

To be in his company was exhilarating.

0:17:440:17:47

When he was with you he was really with you.

0:17:470:17:51

The next song is one that you people request the most, I must say,

0:17:510:17:54

And I thank you for it, because it's the one I love doing the most.

0:17:540:17:59

# From coast to a roast I drink a toast to every town

0:17:590:18:04

# I trust my friends In old St Louis will not frown

0:18:110:18:15

# And each, each time I roam, Chicago is

0:22:290:22:35

APPLAUSE

0:22:360:22:39

I'm sure it's no earth-shattering secret, but I like to sing

0:22:440:22:48

and probably the most satisfaction I get,

0:22:480:22:51

or any singer gets for that matter,

0:22:510:22:54

is singing a well-written ballad.

0:22:540:22:57

Because when a ballad is right it's like poetry set to music.

0:22:570:23:01

One thing I've always tried to reach for in my approach to a ballad

0:23:020:23:06

is a respect for the lyric,

0:23:060:23:08

I try to do it the way I think the writer would like to have had it done.

0:23:100:23:13

For instance I feel a lyric can be a lament,

0:23:150:23:18

it can be an exclamation of joy,

0:23:180:23:21

or a lyric can tell the sum and substance of a man's life.

0:23:210:23:24

# Fairytales can come true It can happen to you

0:23:400:23:45

# If you're young at heart

0:23:480:23:51

# For it's hard, you will find To be narrow of mind

0:23:550:24:01

# If you're young at heart

0:24:030:24:06

# You can go to extremes with impossible schemes

0:24:090:24:15

# You can laugh if your dreams Fall apart at the seams

0:24:170:24:21

# And life gets more exciting with each passing day

0:24:240:24:29

# You had a head start

0:25:250:25:28

# If you are among the very young at heart. #

0:25:300:25:39

I'd like to take just one second to do something...

0:25:450:25:47

-You already took 40 minutes!

-It would be very nice.

0:25:470:25:50

We have a little lady in the wings who is my daughter.

0:25:500:25:53

-She's 17 years old.

-Yeah, it's her birthday.

-She was born on Father's Day.

0:25:530:25:56

She came here with me for the trip and it's her birthday,

0:25:560:26:00

-it's my daughter Tina's birthday. Would you say hello to my daughter?

-Tina!

0:26:000:26:04

Father's Day 1965 and my 17th birthday.

0:26:060:26:09

A very special night for both of us.

0:26:090:26:12

Add to that Dad's good friends Count Basie

0:26:130:26:16

and Quincy Jones sharing the stage.

In 1957, Dad brought the sound of his classic Capitol recordings

0:28:540:28:57

to television.

0:28:570:28:59

Live television.

0:28:590:29:01

No tape, no second chances.

0:29:010:29:03

But he loved a good challenge

0:29:030:29:05

and the immediacy definitely appealed to him.

0:29:050:29:08

His performances on those shows are some of my favourites.

It was really hard to miss him.

0:45:110:45:13

working a crossword puzzle in ink

0:45:130:45:16

and listening to a ball game on his transistor radio.

# Up to the moment when we said our first hello

0:50:540:50:59

# Little did we know

0:50:590:51:02

# Love was just a glance away

0:51:020:51:06

# A warm, embracing dance away and...

0:51:060:51:11

# Ever since that night we've been together

0:51:110:51:17

# Lovers at first sight in love forever

0:51:170:51:22

# It turned out all right for strangers in the night

0:51:220:51:29

# Two strangers in the night

0:51:310:51:37

# Oh, be-do-be, do-be, do-be, do. #

0:51:390:51:48

APPLAUSE

0:51:480:51:50

It's nothing Dad ever said, but it didn't take me long to realise

0:52:000:52:03

his career came first

0:52:030:52:05

and his destiny was partly mine.

0:52:050:52:08

I would lose him to the world much of the time and sometimes resent it.

0:52:080:52:13

But after all these years without him,

0:52:130:52:16

I'm very grateful he worked so hard and well.

0:52:160:52:19

I can still see him and hear him,

0:52:190:52:22

and that comforts me.
