- Hoagy on My Mind, first released in spring 2001, was reissued as Heart and Soul. This CD featured the veteran jazz violinist Johnny Frigo.
Regarding Hammerstein, Officer notes that "I know he's viewed as somehow being too simple, too direct." Also: "People say he's not as sophisticated as Porter or as witty as Hart. But he's written plenty of songs that are filled with poetry. 'All the Things You Are' is a classic, of course. But there also is a song like 'Don't Ever Leave Me,' which was also written with Jerome Kern, that is poetic and simple."
