The American Popular Song Series: Eubie Blake Transcript Terry Gross : This is "Fresh Air." I'm Terry Gross. [music up and under] Terry Gross : The song is "Memories of You," one of the best known melodies composed by Eubie Blake. At the piano is Dick Hyman, who is joining us today with singer Vernel Bagneris. They're going to revive some of Eubie Blake's wonderful, but largely forgotten, songs. Some of the songs we're going to hear come from Blake's 1921 musical, Shuffle Along . That show not only left us with great music. It changed Broadway. Shuffle Along was created by, and starred, African Americans. It brought new syncopated rhythms and dances to Broadway, and even helped launch the Harlem Renaissance. Here to tell us about the impact of Eubie Blake's work and the obstacles Blake faced as an African American composer is theater historian Robert Kimball. He helped rediscover Blake in the late 60s and co-authored the book, Reminiscing with Sissle and Blake . Kimball is also the co-author of The Gershwins and editor of the complete lyrics of Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter.

Ruth Laredo,
Pianist Who Recorded Rachmaninoff, Dies at 67
Ruth Laredo, a pianist equally at home in chamber music and solo works who was known for landmark recordings of Scriabin and Rachmaninoff, died on Wednesday at her apartment in New York. She was 67.
Steve J. Sherman, 1999 Ruth Laredo in 1999 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she performed in the long-running "Concerts With Commentary" series. Ms. Laredo, who played her last concert on May 6 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, had cancer and died in her sleep, said her manager, James Murtha. The concert was one of a series she had given for 17 years at the Met called "Concerts With Commentary," in which Ms. Laredo played and spoke engagingly about music. The series had become an important part of the New York concert scene, where she was a frequent presence. Just two days after the attack on the World Trade Center, Ms. Laredo celebrated the 25th anniversary of her Alice Tully Hall debut with a recital there. It was the opening concert of the 2001 Lincoln Center season, and Ms. Laredo addressed the audience beforehand, saying: "It was important for me to play. Great music gives us spiritual sustenance and gives us hope. It is in that spirit that I play tonight."

Thad Jones (Thaddeus Joseph Jones) Thad Jones - b. Mar. 28, 1923, Pontiac, MI, d. Aug. 20, 1986, Copenhagen, Denmark
A harmonically advanced trumpeter/cornetist with a distinctive sound and a talented arranger/composer, Thad Jones (the younger brother of Hank and older brother of Elvin) had a very productive career. Self-taught on trumpet, he started playing professionally when he was 16 with Hank Jones and Sonny Stitt.
After serving in the military (1943-46), Jones worked in territory bands in the Midwest. During 1950-53, he performed regularly with Billy Mitchell's quintet in Detroit and he made a few recordings with Charles Mingus (1954-55). Jones became well-known during his long period (1954-63) with Count Basie's Orchestra, taking a "Pop Goes the Weasel" chorus on "April in Paris" and sharing solo duties with Joe Newman. While with Basie, Jones had the opportunity to write some arrangements and he became a busy free-lancer writer after 1963.

''S Wonderful'
The Gershwins Come Alive in Symposium
by Helen Dalrymple The Library's Music Division celebrated the March 17 opening of the new George and Ira Gershwin Room located across the hall from the Jefferson Building's Coolidge Auditorium with a March 13-16 event that explored "The Gershwins and Their World." With songs, dances, lectures and panel discussions by personal friends of the Gershwins, musicians, performers and scholars of their music, George (1898-1937) and Ira Gershwin (1896-1983) lived again for the participants and audience of some 300 people. In his opening remarks, Jon Newsom, chief of the Music Division, explained how the almost 60-year-long association between the Library of Congress and the Gershwin family began in 1939: "Harold Spivacke, chief of the Music Division from 1937 to 1972, developed a strong friendship with Ira and Leonore [his wife]. Out of the warm personal ties of this friendship we have seen the growth of an institution within the Library that has fostered the building of our collections and the expansion of our public programs in unprecedented ways, consistent with the broad vision of Ira and George. It was during Harold Spivacke's tenure at the Library that many of the great treasures in the Gershwin Collection came to us, and not only from Ira and Leonore, but from other family members, including George's sister, Frances Gershwin Godowsky." The George and Ira Gershwin Room is a permanent exhibition area for materials from the Library's George and Ira Gershwin Collection, which includes George's piano and desk, Ira's typing table and typewriter, self-portrait oil paintings of each brother, as well as music manuscripts and other documents that chronicle the lives and careers of the two brothers. An interactive audio-video kiosk allows visitors to view film footage and additional materials from the Gershwin Collection and hear recordings of Gershwin music.
