Overview

During the Fifties, American artists from the world of jazz and popular music turned to Kurt Weill and the melodies that came from his music for the theatre, notably the future Broadway hits that he created in the USA. Thanks to those artists, Weill's songs went straight into the Great American Songbook for good, writing a new chapter that erased the Berlin/Brecht imagery usually linked to the German composer of the world-famous Threepenny Opera. This release is a compilation of some of Kurt Weill's most popular songs, performed by some of the world's most famous musicians, including Ella Fitzgerald, Abbey Lincoln, Chet Baker, and many others.
