The Songs of Dorothy Fields
Thu, Feb 2, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Dorothy Fields was the only woman to achieve major success as a songwriter during the golden age of the American popular song. She began her career in the 1920s, and for more than fifty years she was virtually alone among the famous male composers of the period. She was strictly a lyricist, but she created the words for some of the most famous songs by Jimmie McHugh, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz and Cy Coleman. From her first two years came two masterpieces, “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “On the Sunny Side Of the Street” that by themselves would guarantee her a place in the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, but there were many more, some 400 in all. Above all she was “a lyricist’s lyricist” whose words, whether from 1928 or 1973, have remained timely and appealing. Look for "Close As Pages In a Book", "Don’t Blame Me", "A Fine Romance", "Big Spender", "I’m In the Mood For Love", "Diga Diga Doo" and "You Couldn’t Be Cuter", among many other classics!
