Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (August 18, 2018)

This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features the music of Harry Warren. Warren was an American composer and lyricist born in New York City in 1893. His composed over 800 songs, more than Irving Berlin, but was known as the incognito Hollywood composer—even though three episodes of the Lawrence Welk Show were devoted to his music. His parents were Italian immigrants who couldn’t afford music lessons for Harry, but—at a young age—he taught himself to play his father’s accordion. He also sang in the church choir and learned to play the drums. At age 14, he started playing the drums professionally in a traveling carnival show. By 1915, he was working for a movie studio in NYC. In 1918, he joined the Navy and began to write songs at age 25.
