Music Lecture Series with John Tuohy

The Crooners: From Bing to Dean, Mel and Beyond
Crooner is an American epithet given primarily to male singers of jazz standards, mostly from the Great American Songbook, backed by either a full orchestra, a big band, or a piano. Originally it was an ironic term denoting a sentimental singing style made possible by the use of microphones. Join guitarist, John Tuohy as he explores the most world-renowned crooners from the first half of the 20th century.

This is the 1st lecture in a three-part series.
