One of the composers of the "Great American Songbook"; composer, pianist and singer Hoagy Carmichael was a master of popular song. With his naturally laid-back style, he created graceful and inspired melodies, producing a prodigious string of hits from the 1920s to the 1960s. Carmichael attributed his melodic gift to his roots in jazz, his first and most important musical inspiration.
Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1971
