These four fantastic cabaret songs are splendid examples of the genre. They not only provide ample evidence of the composer's and poet's wit and high spirits, but are also wholly characteristic of a particular kind of vernacular music that resulted from the collaboration of two brilliantly endowed young men in the thirties.
Arranged for Piano and voice.
Titles: Tell me the truth about Love * Funeral Blues * Johnny * Calypso.
