Blues in the Night
The Magic of Harold Arlen
Thu, Jan 27 - Fri, Feb 4
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.
