Summary
From the turn of the century to the 1960s, the songwriters of Tin Pan Alley dominated American music. Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart -even today these giants remain household names, their musicals regularly revived, their methods and styles analyzed and imitated, and their songs the bedrock of jazz and cabaret. Furia shows how their poetic lyrics were as important as their brilliant music to shaping a golden age of American popular songs.-Derived from book jacket
