Jerome Kern wasn’t a lyricist, but he sure as shootin’ worked with some of the Broadway’s top wordsmiths during the several decades he spent as Broadway’s top composer. Oscar Hammerstein, Yip Harburg, Dorothy Fields, and Johnny Mercer all set words to the tunes he produced and then reminded his collaborators they weren’t to change a single note. Appearing, among other Kernites, in “The Song is You” are Barbara Carroll, Paula West, James Naughton, Jeffry Denman, and Karen Ziemba.
