Every year, on the anniversary of Cliff Foenander’s death, I try to do something to relive the memories of the great entertainer and the fantastic uncle that he was ….. a real inspiration to me, so I put together this video.

The soundtrack is from his last professional studio recording 1994.  The album …. ‘Second Chance’.  It was recorded not long after his first battle with lung cancer.  The recording was made possible by Paul Dhamaratne and featured some of Australia’s finest jazz musicians.

The song list was completely Cliff’s choice … music he had loved through-out his career and dreamed of recording one day!

    May he rest in peace. I always had tears in my eyes when he sang I did it my way. I know it was sung at his funeral and it was also sung at my husband Eric’s funeral who was also an Arethusa boy. Absolutely beautiful Rob he will be very proud of you. God bless you I still have the photos taken at the Arethusa get together that he was at shortly before he passed away.
