Despite their contrasting characters and lifestyles, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were among the most popular songwriters on Broadway in the 1920s and 1930s and before the inevitable and tragic end of the partnership, wrote some of the wittiest and prettiest songs of the period.
Pieces like “My Funny Valentine”, “Mountain Greenery”, “My Heart Stood Still”, “This Can’t Be Love”, “Have You Met Miss Jones?” and “The Lady Is A Tramp” have not only stood the test of time, they helped set the benchmark standard for the Great American Songbook.
