This time around, we put the spotlight on the man we like to call "The King of Swank," Henry Mancini. He wrote so much iconic movie and TV music like “The Peter Gunn Theme,” “Pink Panther Theme,” and “Mr. Lucky,” just to name a few. We’ll hear from the man himself (not doing his own tunes) and we’ll see how others of the hi-fi era approached his music.
