Description

The American Songbook: The Singers, the Songwriters, and the Songs

The American Songbook genre preserves the work of great composers and the artists who sing or perform their works. Much of this iconic music comes from films and Broadway plays and many jazz artists have interpreted these tunes. For example, “Green Dolphin Street,” written by Bronislaw Kaper for the 1947 film of the same name, was performed many years later by Miles Davis, who inspired other artists to include the song in their repertoires.

A native Washingtonian and graduate of Dunbar High School and the University of California at Los Angles, Donnie McKethan retired from the IBM Corporation after a successful business career. He is programmer on radio Station WPFW 89.3 FM and hosts the “American Songbook” program Sunday afternoons from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
