About

The very best of Jerome Kern (1885-1945) is presented in a double CD set for a magnificent addition, the eighth, to Retrospectiveís invaluable series devoted to the great songwriters of the last century. With Show Boat, Kern was the founding figure of the 20th century American musical, and creator of many of the most timeless of popular evergreens. He was unsurpassed in matching music to words. Our anthology The Song Is You (the title-song peerlessly performed by Frank Sinatra) delivers his 51 best songs on a single CD. Included are such wonderful numbers as All The Things You Are, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, The Way You Look Tonight, Long Ago And Far Away, Yesterdays, A Fine Romance, They Didn't Believe Me and Who?
