The Great American Songbook & Singers with Russ Salk

Spend the afternoon listening to some great music. Russ will play musical recordings and lecture on their place in our musical culture. You'll hear some rare but outstanding performances of standards, known as the Great American Songbook. You probably know the names George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin. Russ will introduce you to a whole world of composers and lyricists beyond that. Among the singers you will hear are Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, and Peggy Lee, with some Big Band and breezy jazz thrown into the mix.
