Fascinatin' Rhythm: Ira Gershwin: When Wit Serves Romance, 05/29/21


Episoce #2122

5/29      Ira Gershwin: When Wit Serves Romance Ira Gershwin didn’t like to write conventional love ballads. He always never came out and said “I love you.” He much preferred something clever or indirect, something to make a familiar emotion feel fresh. He preferred to use wit to write about romance.
