"Dedicated to the memory of Henry Mancini -
who gave, and gave, and gave."
(Listed at the end credits of "A Memory For Tino").
Henry Mancini, late 1980s.
Henry Mancini is someone who certainly needs no introduction to anyone familiar with his television and motion picture scores which he wrote year after year for five decades. Hank was simply one of the most prolific American composers, ever. As a small child, I grew up listening to his record albums being played in the home, which led me to start purchasing them for myself once I graduated from high school. I hope visitors to the site will take the time to read a story about this on the page entitled "My Favorite Composer". After starting work on a larger collection-based site, I decided instead to change direction and present as many works I could find of Henry's right here, as that is what some other Mancini fans wanted and expressed to me in email.

Below you will find a PayPal button for your
convenience to donate funds so that I can meet my costs for keeping the
sites online. I am a verified member of PayPal. I neither
accept nor solicit outside advertising to be placed on any of the
artist pages, nor will I ever do so. Advertising totally
intrudes on what I want to achieve with these sites. I am most
happy to provide my time and energy in adding to and updating these
sites on a daily basis, but I need help in paying for the internet
space, internet provider, and domain name registration year after
year. These costs are not insignificant. My discographies - which now span many music artists as well as two music journalists - make up
well over 500 pages of internet information! They are the
largest discographies of their kind on the entire internet.
Please consider donating if you have found these discographies to be a
worthwhile resource for yourself or for your organization. Thank
