24 may — regarding unimplemented idea of dividing site into two parts: 1890-1937, and 1938f

I may add one more year to part 1 of Songbook prior to taking a break before moving on to part 2 which will then cover 1938 to whenever. I still haven’t decided how far to take it. Probably no later than 1954 or ’55. The years ending and beginning the two sections can be changed later. I need to take a break to attend to other matters.

Extending part 1 to 1937 will allow me to include the two films scored by George Gershwin, or at least the future standards which they introduced. Standards I plan to feature from 1937 are:

My Funny Valentine

The Nearness of You

Easy Living

A Foggy Day

Gone with the Wind

Nice Work If You Can Get It

They Can’t Take That Away from Me

Where or When

In the Still of the Night
