has been added to your Cart. This is a collection of twenty-five Irving Berlin songs taken from different albums that were recorded between 1944 and 1963 by various artists with some of the most gifted arrangers and conductors in the industry - Nelson Riddle, Frank DeVol, Billy May, Red Norvo, Gus Levene and Paul Weston, just to name a few.

1. There's No Business Like Show Business - Mary Martin, Louis Adrian & Orchestra, John Raitt. 2. Puttin' On The Ritz - 1992 Digital Remaster - Judy Garland. 3. Marie - Remastered - Vic Damone. 4. The Song Is Ended (But The Melody Lingers On) - Dinah Shore.

The songs of Irving Berlin are I-beams in the towering edifice of 20th century popular music.

There's No Business Like Show Business, 01:11. The Song Is Ended (But the Melody Lingers On), 03:19. Isn't This a Lovely Day (To Be Caught In the Rain?), 02:32. Play a Simple Melody, 02:31.

Standout performances include Kay Starr's "You're Just In Love," Betty Hutton's up-tempo "Blue Skies," and Peggy Lee's "Cheek To Cheek. There are also some lovely Nat King Cole numbers, and a seldom-heard Bobby Darrin swinger "All By Myself". 1. Mary Martin & John Raitt – There's No Business Like Show Business (01:12) 2. Judy Garland – Puttin' on the Ritz (01:50) 3. Vic Damone – Marie (02:02) 4. Dinah Shore – The Song Is Ended (But The Melody Lingers On) (03:20) 5. Margaret Whiting – Heat Wave (02:34) 6. Dick Haymes – Isn't This A Lovely Day (To Be Caught In. Jazz is only marginally represented here, in spite of the fact that jazz grew up on Irving Berlin's often jazz-inspired melodies, many of which survive today primarily as jazz standards. Certainly jazz is manifested in Nat King Cole (with both trio and big band), Nancy Wilson, Johnny Mercer and bandleaders Red Norvo and Billy May. Several ex-big-band singers are in the mix, including Peggy Lee and Kay Starr.
