Richard Rogers passed away in 1997 after a musical career without parallel.
Today a great deal of his compositions are regarded immortal and natural part of the ”Great American Songbook”. On this album three contemporary jazz musicians play 10 of the pieces he´d written in his early years, or in collaboration with Lorenz Hart.
