Critics Corner
Jonathan Schwartz On his radio show, Sunday, August 14, 2011, Jonathan Schwartz prefaced his playing of the Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Armstrong version of "April in Paris" by recalling that years before when Yip Harburg had appeared on this same show, Schwartz asked him if he was aware that Ella and Louis had recorded his song. Yip responded that no he wasn't aware of it and was surprised to hear it. Upon playing the recording for Harburg (and for his radio audience), Jonathan then reported that the lyricist was so moved by what he heard that he wept.
