An unforgettable portrait of an exuberant but artist who so enriched the yank songbook

“Blue Moon, ” “Where or whilst, ” “The woman Is a Tramp,” “My humorous Valentine,” “Isn’t It Romantic?,” “My Romance,” “There’s a Small Hotel,” “Falling in Love with Love,” “Bewitched, afflicted and Bewildered”—lyricist Lorenz Hart, including composer Richard Rodgers, wrote probably the most memorable songs ever created. greater than part a century after their collaboration ended, Rodgers & Hart songs are integral to the repertoire of nightclub singers far and wide. A send with no Sail is the tale of the complex guy who used to be Lorenz Hart.

His lyrics spin with brilliance and class, but at their middle is an unmistakable wistfulness. the beauty of “My Romance” and “Isn’t It Romantic?” is unsurpassed in American music, yet Hart’s lyrics may be cynical, humorous, ironic. He introduced a distinct wit and style to well known tune.

Larry Hart and Richard Rodgers wrote nearly thirty Broadway musicals and dozens of songs for Hollywood motion pictures. not less than 4 in their musicals—On Your ft, Babes in fingers, the lads from Syracuse, and Pal Joey— became classics. yet regardless of their prodigious collaboration, Rodgers and Hart have been a strange couple. Rodgers used to be unique, punctual, heterosexual, good-looking, and wanting to be authorised by means of Society. Hart was once slightly 5 toes tall, alcoholic, gay, and more well-off in a bar or eating place than at any place else. frightened of solitude, he always threw the celebration and collected the payment. His lyrics are all of the extra amazing because he by no means sustained a romantic courting, residing his complete existence together with his mom, who died simply months sooner than he died at age forty-eight.

Gary Marmorstein’s revelatory biography comprises the various lyrics that outline Hart’s legacy—those smart, touching stanzas that also flow us or make us laugh.
