Accentuate the Positive
About the Event
It was in 1944 that Bing Crosby made the Johnny Mercer tune, Accentuate the Positive, a hit in film and on radio. It later became known as one of the songs that got Americans through World War Two. The popular songs of the day, now called the American Songbook, became an unofficial catalogue of music that comforted, inspired, and connected Americans at home and abroad between the 1920s-1940s.
Now, Jazz at the Ballroom presents Accentuate the Positive, an evening of the unforgettable music from the Songbook that kept Americans company for over four transformational decades. An all-star line-up shares the stage with the Konrad Paszkudzki Quartet to sing classic standards including Pennies from Heaven, Look for the Silver Lining, On the Sunny Side of the Street, It Had to be You, and As Time Goes By.
