A Remarkable Story. A Remarkable Book.2009年10月9日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
In this very well-written, humorous, and affectionate homage to the American Songbook, David Lehman hears the Jewish sounds in much of America's greatest popular music. All the great characters are here--Kern, the Gershwins, Berlin, Arlen, and so many others. I found the story of Larry Hart to be especially moving. Lehman seeks their appeal by examining the story of his own interest in the music, bringing us along by using enthusiasm and knowledge. I knew the book was so good because at the end I wanted to go hear the music. Indeed, the book's charms work so well you can hear the strains of some of the great songs in the rhythm of Lehman's extraordinary prose.

The author points out his observations regarding the melodies of the songs which are familiar to all of us the minor chords suggestive of yiddush runs of ascending notes. It is a fascinating book for all music lovers of songs of the golden age by our favorite songwriters.
