Patsy Montelone's 100 Songs Project

Patsy Montelone is strumming and singing his way through 100 songs. All will be posted online for listening and download.
"Most tunes I record and post here will be from the so-called 'Great American Songbook,' works by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, and other less-well-known song writers of the Tin Pan Alley jazz-pop genre."

As of this morning, he's up to Number 15, "Waltz for Debby." Link

Who in the world created the phrase "Great American Sonbgbook"
anyway, Gary? And you must intone it with hushed and bated breath, head raised to the skies with a radiant glow upon your worshipful face. Dare to question the greatness of some of the tunes (and what are the exact tunes in the canon, anyway) and the Tony Bennett Police will be paying you a visit
quite early in the a.m. Does the term "disappeared" ring a bell?

Ron, isn't "Dissapeared" a Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn chart?
