The Downtown music publishing company has announced a worldwide administration deal with another publisher, Notable Music Co, which will see the former administrate the catalogues of the latter. Notable was founded by composer and jazz musician Cy Coleman back in 1962 and counts songs like ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’, ‘Big Spender’ and ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’ amongst its catalogue.

Confirming the new arrangement, Downtown Music Publishing boss Justin Kalifowitz told reporters: “It is with extreme gratitude that we welcome Notable to Downtown Music Publishing. When he wasn’t busy contributing to the Great American Songbook or scoring many iconic, award winning Broadway musicals, Songwriters Hall Of Fame member Cy Coleman built one of the finest song collections of his time. We couldn’t be more delighted to represent this historic catalogue and partner with Damon [Booth] in growing the Notable business for years to come”.

Booth, VP and GM for Notable, added: “I’ve been a big fan of the creativity, passion and commitment Downtown has shown to its roster for many years. It’s an honour to be joining Justin and his team at this exciting and challenging time in our business”.
