About this Item

First Edition. A well-documented exhibition catalogue honoring the 75th birthday of the noted American songwriter and Indiana University alumni, Hoagland ÒHoagyÓ Howard Carmichael, compiled and described by Frank J. Gillis of the Archives of Traditional Music Department at Indiana University. Hoagy Carmichael rose to great fame and popularity as a musician and songwriter in the 30s and 40s and is perhaps best remembered as the creator of the classic song ÒStardustÓ, the possible first regular piano composition of which is included in this exhibit, as well as the vocal edition, with words by Mitchell Parish. Also included are many musical manuscripts, sheet music; original recordings such as ÒGeorgia (On My Mind)Ó and ÒLazy BonesÓ; program notes, typed and autographed letters; film related material for such films as To Have and Have Not, Young Man With a Horn, The Best Years of Our Lives, etc., golf notes and miscellany, facsimiles of contracts, photographs, and much more. Laid in is a folded two page facsimile of the original manuscript for ÒStardustÓ. Carmichael appeared in many Hollywood movies, often as a piano player, including the classic To Have and Have Not. Paperbound. Fine condition. An essential addition to the library of any Hoagy Carmichael or American jazz enthusiast or collector. Bookseller Inventory # 12853E
