Harold Arlen: The Songwriters

Harold Arlen was among the great musicians who revolutionized Broadway music during the ‘20s with the sounds of jazz and R&B. The heretofore classical style of the musical stage went out the window, and soon, the swinging tunes Arlen was writing for musical theater became hits in their own rights. Generations later, many of his songs have become standards with permanent places in pop culture.
