120 DINER presents:
"JOHN ALCORN SINGS IRVING BERLIN"
Jazz singer John Alcorn in *week two* of his tribute to the great geniuses of Broadway and Jazz in The Songbook Series. Joined by Ben Bishop (guitar) and Pat Collins (bass), Alcorn will share two sets of Irving Berlin's incredible music and lyrics.

ABOUT IRVING BERLIN:
Starting with his first major international hit -- "Alexander's Ragtime Band" (1911) - Berlin produced an outpouring of ballads, dance numbers, novelty tunes and love songs that defined American popular song for the next five decades. A sampling of just some of his standards includes "How Deep Is the Ocean," "Blue Skies," White Christmas," "Always," "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better," "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Cheek to Cheek," "Puttin' on the Ritz," "Heat Wave," "Easter Parade" and "Let's Face the Music and Dance."

He was equally at home writing for Broadway and Hollywood. He wrote seventeen complete scores for Broadway musicals and revues, and contributed material to six more. Among the shows featuring all-Berlin scores were CALL ME MADAM and the phenomenally successful ANNIE GET YOUR GUN.

Among the Hollywood movie musical classics with scores by Irving Berlin are TOP HAT, FOLLOW THE FLEET, ON THE AVENUE, HOLIDAY INN, EASTER PARADE, WHITE CHRISTMAS and THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS.
