LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, April 22, 2010
Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the exclusive print publisher of thousands of popular artists, is excited to announce the release of The Comden and Green Songbook, a brand-new sheet music collection arranged for piano and voice.

For over 50 years, Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote lyrics for some of the Broadway and film world's greatest composers, including Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman, and Andre Previn. Comden and Green’s lyrics were always fun, poignant, witty, intelligent, and well-crafted. This songbook features 27 of their best-loved songs, as well as a song-by-song analysis, black-and-white photographs, and a special appreciation by Phyllis Newman (Mrs. Adolph Green). Geared towards piano performance, this folio contains piano/vocal/guitar arrangements written in standard music notation.

The Comden and Green Songbook is now available for $16.99.
