John Herndon Mercer was born in 1909, and died in 1975. Making his centenary in a manner befitting his widespread and long-lasting influenced would require releasing a veritable library of music. This single disc collection is intended to serve as a portal into the rich, lyrical world that Mercer created, to show how the music of one man continues to light creative fires in today's music scene.

Johnny Mercer's lyrics (and music too) have touched generations of music fans, sold millions of recordings, and continue to resonate as part of our cultural language.

Over a 40-year career, he wrote more than 1500 songs, generating more than 100 hits, 13 in the Top 10. More than 385 movies have included Mercer tunes; 18 nominated for an Academy Award.
