Jazz and Broadway have a very symbiotic relationship. It was the writers of the Great American Songbook who composed most of the classic songs for Broadway in the 20th Century–Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rogers, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, and later Leonard Bernstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephan Sondheim. The songs by these composers became the basic repertoire for jazz artists of all eras. Tonight we celebrate the intersection of Jazz and Broadway.
