Vintage & Rare the Songs of Harold Arlen, Vol. 2: Hit the Road to Dreamland
The Great American Songbook standards of Harold Arlen performed with a jazz sensibility and a trio of wonderful jazz musicians
This volume 2 in the series entitled, "The Songs of Harold Arlen: Vintage & Rare". It is subtitled 'Hit the Road to Dreamland".
The Harold Arlen Project is a series of CD's that will record approximately 100 of Arlen's songs: the classics, the rare, a few instrumentals, and, of course, the signature tunes. Arlen, one of the most gifted composers of the Great American Songbook, is frequently omitted when a group of the major composers of that canon is listed. Arlen's name is often overshadowed by his songs. This project aims to bring his name more into the national and global consciousness.
