“Senior Song Book” is the newest album to be released by the oldest professional songwriting team in music history. At the helm of the album released on Nov 15, 2019, is 102-year-old lyricist Alan R. Tripp. Tripp, along with his 88-year-old junior teammate, jazz pianist Marvin Weisbord, has produced a beautifully orchestrated work filled with new originals that hark back to the Big Band era.
The new eight-song collection has been written particularly for seniors, by seniors. One will sway to the music as the “Senior Song Book” moves seamlessly from swing and tango to rumba and other favorite styles along with Big Band orchestration panache. Listeners will reminisce to sounds harking back to the 1940s, but with modern lyrics that bring the melodies into the 2020s.
