Cynthia Clarey and Jeff Dean Celebrate the Music of Harold Arlen

No other songwriter so accomplished was ever so unfamous. But chances are you have hummed, heard, or in some way referenced an Arlen tune today. It was probably “Over the Rainbow” but perhaps it was “Come Rain or Come Shine” or dozens of others. Harold had the unique knack for combining Hebraic melody with early black jazz; octave leaps and surprising chord changes abounding in songs that were sometimes twice the standard length. And there was nothing calculated about it. It poured freely from the gentle soul that was in part responsible for his anonymity.
