92YTribeca presents "FEVER," THE BLUES AND THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK on Thu, Apr 4, 12-1 pm. Tickets from $21.
"Fever" is a great song with a fascinating history. It made the journey from R&B (Little Willie John) to mainstream pop (Peggy Lee) and then, surprisingly, into rock & roll (Elvis Presley). But, as audio and video excerpts show, the song's trajectory and history also make for a fascinating look at what the popular song is, what a standard is, and what the blues are-and how they all affect and interact with each other.
The presentation will take place at 200 Hudson Street, 92YTribeca. For more information, go to www.92YTribeca.org or call 212.601.1000.
