to Kreiselman Music Publishing.
I started Kreiselman Music Publishing to focus on the catalog of my grandfather,
Irving Weiser, a successful songwriter during the Big Band Era. Eventually,
Kreiselman Music Publishing will expand to include work by other writers
and material such as new seasonal holiday songs as well as small-scale
musicals and operas.
Irving Weiser (1913-1997) composed the music for the song 'There I Go'.
For three weeks in December, 1940, it was the #1 song in the United States.
Initially recorded by Vaughn Monroe, it was also recorded by Glenn Miller,
Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Fats Waller, The Crew Cuts and about 20 other
artists. While a few other Weiser songs hit the charts with moderate success
through the 40s, the decline of Big Band and the rise of Rock 'n Roll
led my grandfather to a teaching career of music and English. Shortly
before his death, I discovered a box of songs in the Weiser basement which
had never been recorded or published. In addition to ballads and swing,
he composed in a wide range of styles: blues, World War II songs, 50s
doo-wop, symphonic work and a children's musical. In the Fall of 2003,
I created and produced a workshop of a new musical, 'There I Go - A New
Hit Parade' which features 24 Weiser songs.
