Richard Charles Rodgers became one of America's greatest songwriters. The word 'prolific' might have been invented for him, since his output spanning six decades included forty Broadway musicals, Hollywood films, scores for television and over 900 published songs. His melodies were so finely crafted that it is hardly surprising that all of the top arrangers and orchestras were attracted to his music, and some of the very best recordings from around half a century ago are featured on this CD. With names such as Percy Faith, Mantovani, David Rose, Andre Kostelanetz, Stanley Black, Robert Farnon, Morton Gould and Rodgers himself waving the baton, the quality of this collection speaks for itself.
