Nothing defines the songs of the Great American Songbook
(1920-1950) more richly than their urban sensibility. It was as if the
songwriters stood on the West Side of Manhattan to look out over the
rest of the country to describe America to the Americans, not its
geography or politics but its heart. Like his new book, City Songs and
American Life, 1900-1950, Michael Lasser’s talk gives his take on the
music he’s lived with for more than half a century to answer the
question: what makes an urban song urban when it never mentions the
city. Following the talk, Lasser will be signing copies of his book.
