Jazz and The Great American Songbook. Sometimes a standard began life as a flop, as with ‘Here’s That Rainy Day’. Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Vurke wrote the song for the 1953 musical Carnival In Flanders, but the show closed after just six performances. The late Natalie Cole, who had massive triumphs with the tribute album Unforgettable in 1991 (and its 2008 follow-up, Still Unforgettable) obviously had inspiration close at hand in the shape of her father Nat King Cole, who was popularising splendid songs such as ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ on the new medium of television at a time when his daughter was still. There is now even The Great American Songbook Foundation, which will run its eighth annual summer academy for gifted young musicians in 2017. The Great American Songbook is one of the most special and unique creations of American culture. Let’s all face the music and dance.
