Frank Loesser, Jerry Herman, and Cabooses…

Really interesting column by Michael Riedel, talking about Frank Loesser’s influence on Jerry Herman: “One morning I woke up and she told me to get all my little songs together because I had a meeting with Frank Loesser. ‘You gotta be kidding,’ I said. I was very negative about playing my ditties for a famous composer. I didn’t want to go.” 

 Then there’s a great discussion about what Loesser calls a “caboose,” something that singers and songwriters should be aware of.
