What People are Saying About This

Tony Bennett

"What an education it has given me to read this book. From Gershwin to Sondheim, it's all here."

Bucky Pizzarelli

"These are the composers I've always loved to play. When I read them it's as if they are talking to me and it's twice as interesting. Trust me. I do both. What could be better than the reading of the lyrics and the playing of the notes together? Bravo Max!"

Michael Feinstein

"You know that a book is good when one of its subjects recommends it to you. That is how I discovered They're Playing Our Song. Ira Gershwin told me all about an essential book on American Popular Song. And now, years after Ira's death, when I read Max's chapter on him, I feel like I'm once again sitting at the feet of the master, carefully listening and absorbing Mr. Gershwin's perspective of a bygone but omnipresent era . . . . Strangely enough, time has made the book more important, like a bottle of fine vintage wine."
"Dear Max - a new edition! What a joy . . . Love from . . . "
