Blues in the Night
The Magic of Harold Arlen
Fri, Feb 4, 8:00 - 10:00 pm
The Elsinor Theater, The Elsinor
Perhaps not as well known to the public as George Gershwin or Richard Rogers, Harold Arlen remains the favorite among many lovers of American popular song and a frequent source of inspiration for jazz musicians. From “It’s Only a Paper Moon” to “Over the Rainbow”, his beautifully-crafted melodies, as well as his own harmonizations of these melodies are some of the finest compositions that Broadway and Hollywood have ever produced.
