George Benson: All That Jazz’s ‘On Broadway’ (1979)


On Broadway, sung here by George Benson for the 1979 American film, All That Jazz, based on the life of Bob Fosse [1927–1987], an American dancer, choreographer and screenwriter who is the director of this film. What is being viewed here is the film’s opening sequence, showing a multitude of dancers in rehearsal. The song was written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with suggested changes made by the famous songwriting duo of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. A number of artists and bands recorded this song in the 1960s, including The Cookies, The Crystals and The Drifters. Benson’s version is found on his 1978 album Weekend in L.A.
