Legends like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald gave Harold Arlen a revered place in the Great American Songbook with their performances of his over 400 songs such as “It’s Only a Paper Moon” and “Stormy Weather.” Starting in a synagogue with his cantor father, Arlen’s musical roots extend through his jazz years at the Cotton Club in Harlem all the way to Hollywood and his Academy Award-winning song “Over the Rainbow.” Joseph Leo Bwarie (Jersey Boys, Happy Days) joins Broadway powerhouse Eden Espinoza (Wicked, Rent, and Brooklyn) along with Sam Arlen, who leads a big band tribute to his father, Harold Arlen.
