As a tribute to the late composer and his friend, Cole arranged and performed this piano medley from three of Hamlisch’s songs: “The Way We Were” (title song to the 1973 film) and “At the Ballet” and “What I Did for Love” (both from the hit musical A Chorus Line in 1975).

Soon afterward, he began a history of garnering personal praise from legends like Irving, Berlin, Harold Arlen, E. Y. Harburg, Hugh Martin, Burton Lane, and Stephen Sondheim as well as members of both the Jerome Kern and George/Ira Gershwin families.

“Kid, if I could have played piano like that, I would never have become a song writer!”

  1. Thank you ever so much for your wonderful interpretation of
    Marvin’s compositions. A giant has passed…yet he lives on in his
    music.

  2. I could not agree more with Mr. Cline. Kevin is one of the most generous and talented of performers, and he’s a wonderful friend to all who know him.

  3. Great pianist and greater human being. Very talented pianist, and yet, still took the time to autograph my son’s Gershwin CD and mail it back to him! My family loves him!!!!!! Thanks Kevin!!!!
