Composer, arranger, and pianist Henry Mancini (1924 – 1994) penned some of the most memorable tunes of the modern era. Throughout his career, he recorded more than 90 albums and won 20 Grammys and four Oscars. 

  

To mark what would have been his 91st birthday (April 16), we bring you this Piano Jazz from 1985. Mancini shares about his muse (the movie screen) and performs several favorites, including “Days of Wine and Roses.”
