Skitch Henderson

Swan Lake

Cynthia’s In Love

Lyle Russel "Skitch" Henderson (January 27, 1918 – November 1, 2005) was a pianist, conductor, and composer. His nickname "Skitch" came from his ability to "re-sketch" a song in a different key and Bing Crosby suggested that he should use the name professionally.[2]


Recordings
In 1946, Henderson formed his own orchestra and signed a contract with Capitol Records.[9] Among his earliest releases for Capitol was a 3-disc set titled Keyboard Sketches.[10] His recording career spanned the period from 78s to CDs. Two albums as pianist for Arbors Records were released in the early 21st century, Swinging With Strings (2001) and Legends, with Bucky Pizzarelli (2003). Henderson also served as conductor of The New York Pops with Maureen McGovern on With a Song in My Heart: The Great Songs of Richard Rodgers for Reader's Digest and Centaur Records.
Henderson conducted a 1963 recording for RCA Victor of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with Leontyne Price and William Warfield, which won a Grammy.
