The Great American Songbook

sat 25 may 2024 16:00 CET

Successful American jazz and light music of the 20th century, composed primarily for Broadway musicals, musical theatre and Hollywood films; compositions by Alec Wilder (1907-1980)

Alec Wilder composed not only a number of classical works but also some true standards, as well as a few songs that didn’t quite reach that status. This is undoubtedly because his compositions were often not as accessible, with distinctive melodic twists, compared to the majority of composers featured in the Great American Songbook.

In today’s episode: some lesser known but incredible songs.
