Buddy Greco is a consummate artist, who is a surviving member of a vanished breed of performers who can do it all. To this day he is the personification of stage glamor within his own ranks. He creates flash where there is no lightning. He is simply unique…
The Man: For the first time ever Buddy has spoken in depth about his incredible life. He has an amazing collection of photographs and memorabilia gathered over nearly 70 years in show business. His stories and music, entwined with the changes he has witnessed are the perfect ingredients for this fascinating documentary.
The Music: Buddy performs Misty and two of his favorite ballads Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered and Better Go Now with the trio. He gives us a great arrangement of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes with the big band. The finale is a great rendition of Buddy’s favorite Macarthur Park. Recorded live at the Flamingo, Las Vegas Regent and Buddy’s studio, Las Vegas
The Man: Buddy was one of the headliners during the heyday of Las Vegas and entertainment, an era of true intrigue, sex and scandal. Great friends with Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Buddy recalls those days with great affection and plays a version of Lady is a Tramp recorded with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis. Buddy was one of the last people to see Marilyn Monroe, just days before her death. Until now, these photographs have never been made public.
The Music: Buddy performs Yes, Sir, That’s My Baby, Theme from Tootsie – Might be You, Nat King Cole Medley (Paper Moon, Route 66, Start All Over Again), L-O-V-E and Lady is a Tramp with the trio. He gives us a fun version of Am I Blue with the big band.
