Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera

Bernard D. Hanighen (April 27, 1908, Omaha, Nebraska October 19, 1976, New York, NY) was an American songwriter best known for co-writing "'Round Midnight" and "When a Woman Loves a Man". He also worked with Clarence Williams and Johnny Mercer.

Hanighen composed lyrics for the 1946 Broadway musical Lute Song, which starred Mary Martin and Yul Brynner, and which featured music by Raymond Scott.

Bernie Hanighen and Cootie Williams collaborated to transform Thelonious Monk's bop masterpiece "'Round About Midnight" into "'Round Midnight," creating what became a standard in the vocal canon thanks to performances by Mel Tormé, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Chris Connor, and Julie London.
