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.” At The Soraya, Hal’s son, Sam Arlen, leads a big band in tribute to his father, sharing the stage with Broadway powerhouse Eden Espinosa.
