 Update me on new releases by Levant

Oscar Levant (1906 - 1972)


Oscar Levant, the youngest of four sons, was fourteen when his father died; at fifteen he left school and tried to make a living as a pianist. He went to New York where he studied piano with Sigismond Stojowski and in the late 1920s went to Hollywood where he wrote music for RKO musicals. By 1930 Levant was back in New York writing music for Broadway shows. Two years later he was in London with his musical Out of the Bottle, from which comes his most famous popular song Blame it on my Youth which he wrote with lyricist E. Heyman; it has become a classic standard. In fact, although trained as a classical musician, Levant earned much of his living writing and performing for the Broadway stage, and appearing on radio, and later television.
