Editorial Reviews


Two Incredible Programs On One DVD!

Intimate evenings of informal music, unique performances and fascinating stories.

BURTON LANE (Finian’s Rainbow, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever)

Ira Gershwin was so nervous about meeting composer Burton Lane that he took a tranquilizer. Burton was equally impressed with Ira. It was the beginning of a long collaboration and enduring friendship. When Burton does a live duet with Ira Gershwin’s home move performance of a song they were working on at the time, it’s a showstopper. Burton Lane is a treasure trove of great stories, but his all day stint at the piano to audition little Francis Gumm for MGM is show business legend, as is July Garland.

THE SONGS: "Look to the Rainbow," "Old Devil Moon," "Too Late Now," "If This Isn’t Love," "Everything I Have is Yours," "On a Clear Day," "How About You?" and more.

Vocalists: Burton Lane, Bobbi Baird, Larry Kert, Martha Wright. Pianist: Michael Renzi.

MITCHELL PARISH (Stardust, Stars Fell on Alabama)

Mitchell Parish will always be known as the man who wrote "Stardust," one of the most often recorded and performed songs in the history of popular music, and enough all-time standard hit songs for a dozen writers. Composers who married their music to his lyrics include Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, Glenn Miller and Leroy Anderson; themselves the legends who helped make American music dominant all over the world. As Parish sings and talks about his work, you’ll know why.

THE SONGS: "Stardust," "Deep Purple," "Stairway to the Stars," "Sweet Lorraine," "Stars Fell on Alabama," "Volare," "The Syncopated Clock," and more.

Vocalists: Mitchell Parish, Liliane Stilwell, Jeri Craden, Robert Vallee, Irving Barnes. Pianist: Michael Renzi.

4.0 out of 5 stars A visit with two musical legends September 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have lost all the creative giants of the Great American Songbook --- except for programs like these that preserve the images, the songs, and the stories behind them. A wonderful, musical way to time travel!
