Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Jerome Kern, Frank Loesser, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer e  Harry Warren são os compositores sempre  lembrados quando fazemos referência ao cancioneiro americano.  
Mas há outro tão importante e que criou um padrão de excelência em qualidade e quantidade e os títulos acima definem muito bem esse padrão.
HOAGY CARMICHEL nasceu em Bloomington, estado de Indiana, em 22 de novembro de 1899, filho de Clyde Carmichael (de descendência escocesa) e Lida Mary Robinson, falecendo aos 82 anos em 27 de dezembro  de 1981 no Centro Médico Eisenhower de Rancho Mirage, estado da California, sendo enterrado no Rose Hill Cemetery de sua terra  natal.
Foi pianista, cantor e ator de cinema, mas seu grande trabalho vinculou-se à composição com mais de 200 canções, algumas com letra do próprio e muitas delas com parceiros da mais alta qualidade.
A relação seguinte, parcial, mostra o trabalho de CARMICHAEL em anos seguidos desde 1925 e até praticamente seu falecimento.

Caro Pedro, grande lembrança, Carmichel realmente notável compositor. Merece este destaque.

Anônimo disse...

Que bela repescagem, Mestre Apóstolo. Se me perguntassem sobre os mestres do American Songbook eu jamais mencionaria - por pura ignorancia, confesso -, o nome de Carmichael. Mais uma aula que você proporciona aos leitores do blog. Parabéns.

Edison Junior disse...

Os compositores, ah, esses esquecidos... Stardust é um dos maiores clássicos da música americana. Maravilha!
