Who performed George Gershwin ; Irving Caesar "Swanee" 🏞️🌴best?


























































Narrator: Soon [Irving] Caesar and Gershwin were plotting to write another hit. 




Caesar: We were walking down Broadway and heard a song that was a very big hit at the time: "Hindustan", a one step.  I said to George, "Why don't we write an American one step? Why must it be a Hindustan, George?" And very quietly we wrote "Swanee" in ten minutes....TEN MINUTES!!!! I started out and picked it up and BOOM! We were off to the races. [singing lyrics] "I've been away from you a long time ...dah dah dah"

















Narrator: Al Jolson , one of the most magnetic stars of Broadway introduced "Swanee" at the Winter Garden.  When sixty girls with light bulbs in their shoes sang the chorus, the house came down. 




Narrator:  Within a year, a million copies of sheet music were sold. The lyricist and composer each earned $10,000 in royalties.
