Info on Larry Gelb

In the tradition of his heroes Rodgers and Hart, Harold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen, Larry Gelb is writing songs with real melodies and intelligent lyrics. Gelb started playing the piano at age seven. Today, he has written over 800 songs, including work for film scores, musicals, jingles and jazz compositions.

Composer/lyricist and jazz pianist/teacher Larry Gelb has released a 26-song compilation of some of his most trenchant, witty, and soulful songs in The Larry Gelb Songbook, Volume I essentially a return to American standards. The new CD I'll Remember Love-The Larry Gelb Songbook Volume I consists of 26 songs including performances by Broadway's brightest new vocalists Kelly J. Grant (Phantom of the Opera), Paul Binotta (Dreamgirls), Laura Jordan, David Pearlman, Amy Justman(Company!) & Kyle Bradford(Damn Yankees). The focus track on the new release is "The Blood of America" a timely song that was inspired by Gelb for the Troops in Iraq and the families directly affected by the war- "and it's the blood that flows through each American's veins" -an emotional and uplifting song that Gelb is donating to the troops and their families via online and cd samplers.
