Product Description


Irving Berlin (May 11, 1888 - September 22, 1989) was an American composer and lyricist of widely considered one of the greatest songwriters in American history.Berlin's songs have reached the top of the charts 25 times and have been extensively re-recorded by numerous singers including Ethel Merman, Frank Sinatra, Ethel Waters, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Rosemary Clooney, Cher, Diana Ross, Bing Crosby, Rita Reys, Frankie Laine, Johnnie Ray, Al Jolson, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Doris Day and Ella Fitzgerald. Composer Douglas Moore sets Berlin apart from all other contemporary songwriters, and includes him instead with Stephen Foster, Walt Whitman, and Carl Sandburg, as a "great American minstrel"-someone who has "caught and immortalized in his songs what we say, what we think about, and what we believe. Composer George Gershwin called him "the greatest songwriter that has ever lived",and composer Jerome Kern concluded that "Irving Berlin has no place in American music-he is American music."This 4CD songbook contains some of his most memorable hits.
