Kay Swift (1897--1993) was the first woman to write the score to a hit Broadway musical, the 1930 show Fine and Dandy. Her three most enduring songs are "Fine and Dandy," "Can This Be Love?" and "Can't We Be Friends?" Although she is known for her close association with George Gershwin, her own musical talent was considerable and her contributions to American music of the twentieth century are significant. Her music, written over seven decades, has an unusually broad range: Broadway scores, ballets, chamber music, art songs, popular songs, commercial jingles, and songs for children. This first-ever Kay Swift songbook allows singers and pianists to explore her music and perform it for new audiences.
