For roughly half a century, from the era of the First World War to the era of the
Vietnam War, no music exerted a more powerful influence than Broadway’s, with
its roots in Tin Pan Alley and its extension into Hollywood. Virtually all the major
songwriters were Jews. But how might their impact be explained? What might be
Jewish about their music?
Musical performances by Stuart Adelberg and Rebecca Cooper, accompanied by
Rita Lapcevic.
