In Stardust Melodies, Will Friedwald takes each of these legendary songs apart and puts it together again, with a staggering wealth of detail and unprecedented understanding. Each chapter gives us an extended history of one song—the circumstances under which it was written and first performed—and then explores its musical and lyric content. Drawing on his vast knowledge of records and the careers of performing artists, Friedwald tells us who was responsible for making these songs famous and discusses in depth the performers who have left their unique marks on them. He writes about variations in performance style, about both classic and obscure versions of the songs, about brilliantly original interpretations and ghastly travesties.

This is an important work, make no mistake. My particular pleasure: there is a very important connection between the "Great American Songbook" [e.g.Kern, Van Heusen, Porter, Gershwin, Carmichael] and America's native art form - jazz. This author teaches us about that linkage in an accessible form and is clearly an authority. Much recommended. ( )
