Overview

Rhino's Great American Songwriters, Vol. 4 pays tribute to Irving Berlin, gathering interpretations of his songs by pop and vocal jazz stars like June Christy, Ethel Waters, and Johnny Mathis. Fred Astaire's "Let's Face the Music and Dance" and "Change Partners" define both Astaire and Berlin's elegant charm, while Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" and Dinah Shore's "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly" exemplify Berlin's knack for writing instantly memorable songs that never wear out their welcome, no matter how many times they're played. Bobby Darin's "Blue Skies," Tony Martin's "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody," Louis Armstrong's "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails," and Ella Fitzgerald and Armstrong's duet "Cheek to Cheek" are some of the other highlights of this collection, which is a must for anyone who appreciates the finest traditional pop of the 20th century.
