Episode Summary

American Songbook
American Songbook features intimate conversation and original performances by guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli and jazz vocalist Jane Monheit. From the 1930s to the 1950s, American songwriters created an unequaled body of work we call The American Songbook. Pizzarelli and Monheit talk with Host Ramsey Lewis about what jazz has taken from (and given to) the great American popular song composers, from Irving Berlin to Gershwin and beyond.moreless
