Jazz vocalist Samantha Sidley recalls the best show she ever saw — John Williams and the LA Phil.

Samantha Sidley: Every summer I go to the Hollywood bowl to see my wife’s grandfather John Williams conduct the LA Phil. He does a mixture of pre-’70s film scores along with his own music and it always completely blows me away. I remember one year he did E.T. and a special cut of the actual movie was playing on a big screen along to the live music. When E.T. phoned home there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience.

Samantha Sidley’s “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” single and video is out now.
