Is it possible to be sung and unsung at the same time? You bet. Take lyricist Norman Gimbaleven though his name is unfamiliar, the songs boasting his lyrics are anything but. Ever heard of "Bluesette," "The Girl From Panama," “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” “I Got a Name”? Ever heard of “It Goes as It Goes,” which won the 1979 Oscar? So thanks to this fan for seeing Gimbal gets sung for his accomplishments. Not only does he work through famous and not-so-famous Gimbal items (with Tex Arnold at the piano) but he also tells Gimbal’s story with humor.
