Matt Dennis music and concert videos
Being exposed to music from an early age with his parents both being professional musicians (mum played the violin, dad was a singer), Matt Dennis took to the piano, singing and arranging like a fish to water!
Performing with his family from an early age in the Vaudeville tradition, Matt got to know American showbiz before he even learned to read or write.
Among Matt Dennis’ most famous songs you can find ‘Everything Happens To Me’, ‘Will You Still Be Mine’ and ‘Angel Eyes’.
‘Angel Eyes’ was originally introduced in the motion picture, ‘Jennifer’ in 1953 and has since been attempted by many iconic figures.
This collective effort is what earned ‘Angel Eyes’ the title – A Jazz Standard.
