 Update me on new releases by Rodgers

Richard Rodgers (6/28/1902 - 12/30/1979)

Richard Rodgers began composing at nine and became one of America’s most revered songwriters. His collaboration with Lorenz “Larry” Hart began in 1919 and lasted until Hart’s death in 1943. The success of Garrick Gaieties in 1925 started a string of hits from The Girl Friend (1926) to America’s Sweetheart (1931).

In 1931 they went to Hollywood to write for such talents as Maurice Chevalier, Bing Crosby, and Al Jolson. They rereleased “Blue Moon” with new lyrics, and it became a million seller and a big hit for the Casa Loma orchestra in 1935.

The team returned to Broadway with two successes in 1936, one of which, On Your Toes, included Rodgers’ ballet, “Slaughter on Tenth Avenue.” 1937’s Babes in Arms produced half a dozen hit songs and the intervening years brought more. But in 1940 the team shocked Broadway with the harsh realism of Pal Joey. Their last show was By Jupiter (1942).
