"The Gershwin Years is the chronicle of how it all happened, from George's early days as a song plugger and Ira's first attempts at lyric writing while he was a steam-bath attendant through their subsequent conquest of Broadway and Hollywood. There are pictures and anecdotes about such associates and friends as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Astaires, Gertrude Lawrence and Maurice Ravel, scenes from musicals and movies, snapshots from the family album, sketches and paintings by both George and Ira. Also included are a new critical bibliography, a revised comprehensive listing of all the Gershwins' compositions, complete with show sources and dates of first performances, and a new "informal discography" of what the authors consider to be the best available recordings of the Gershwin's fabulous legacy, written in collaboration with Kay Swift."--Inside flap
America in the air war by Edward Jablonski ( Book )
8 editions published between 1982 and 1989 in English and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the Army Air Forces had only 1,100 combat-ready planes. No one could have imagined then that within the next four years the AAF would become the mighty weapon commemorated in the paintings reproduced on the following pages, or that it would have to scope to engage in what its commander, General Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, described as a "global mission." Nevertheless, by 1944 the AAF had grown into 16 separate air forces stationed around the world, and its 1,100 planes had grown to nearly 80,000

So begins one of the biggest success stories of twentieth-century popular music. Berlin's first writing credit was for the lyrics of the 1907 song "Marie from Sunny Italy." His first landmark hit came in 1911 with the publication of "Alexander's Ragtime Band," and in 1919 Berlin celebrated the formation of his own music publishing firm with "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody." Irrepressible classics that followed include "Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee," "Cheek to Cheek," "This Is the Army, Mr. Jones," and "There's No Business Like Show Business." These and many more were part of his output for Hollywood and Broadway

Alan Jay Lerner : a biography by Edward Jablonski ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During his lifetime, Alan Jay Lerner received every imaginable award in American musical theater, and rightly so: As the lyricist of such astonishing Broadway successes as Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, Gigi, and Camelot, he was one of its architects. He was also one of its last greats, never quite able to regain his footing once the face of Broadway changed for good in the 1960s. Here, noted scholar of musical theater Edward Jablonski tells the story of Lerner's career and of his personal life, filling in the cracks purposely left open in Lerner's own autobiography. A well-off child of the Depression, Lerner was born in New York City, the son of the founder and president of Lerner Stores. Following an education in England and at Harvard, he ended up in New York, where he wrote advertising copy, radio scripts, and spring gambols for the Lambs Club. While lunching at the Lambs one day, he was approached by composer Frederick Loewe, who asked Lerner if he would like to work with him - and thus began a celebrated collaboration. Lerner also worked with a roll call of Broadway's and Hollywood's best, with varying degrees of success: Fred Astaire and Jane Powell (Royal Wedding), Kurt Weill (Love Life), Burton Lane (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever), Leonard Bernstein (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue), and, of course, Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews (My Fair Lady). He experienced the vertiginous highs of being at Broadway's pinnacle: My Fair Lady ran for 2,717 performances in New York, establishing Lerner's reputation as a master of urbane, highly literate songwriting. But when his money ran out - as did the Broadway for which he had been born - his life soured, and, by all accounts, it was something he himself failed to realize. Compelled to keep working by a nervous drive and a stubborn perfectionism, Lerner in later years wrote lyrics for some famously troubled productions. His personal life became just as tangled: All eight of his marriages ended in acrimonious and well-publicized dissolutions, and he was an anxiety-ridden spendthrift to the end
Man with wings : a pictorial history of aviation by Edward Jablonski ( Book )
7 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gershwin remembered by Edward Jablonski ( Book )
10 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gershwin is one of the few composers whose music has been appropriated by popular and 'serious' music lovers alike. Best known for his 'hit' musicals Lady, Be Good, Oh, Kay! and Girl Crazy, he could write with equal conviction for the concert hall and the opera house. Ed Jablonski, a Gershwin aficionado, compiles a revealing portrait of this legendary yet elusive composer, charting his progress from Tin Pan Alley to the starry heights of Hollywood, with contemporary critical reactions to such classics as Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris and Porgy and Bess. Gershwin is remembered by, amongst others, Osbert Sitwell, Oscar Levant, Richard Rodgers, Serge Koussevitzky, Schoenberg, Fred Astaire, Irving Berlin, Kay Swift, Jerome Kern, his sister Frances, and his brother Ira Gershwin, his best-loved collaborator
