Irving Berlin with other Musical Greats

Irving Berlin (composer, lyricist) with other musical greats (left to right): Gene Buck (songwriter), Victor Herbert (composer, cellist, conductor), John Philip Sousa (composer, conductor), Harry B. Smith (writer, lyricist and composer), Jerome Kern (composer - musical theater, popular music), (Irving Berlin) , George W. Meyer (songwriter), Irving Bibo (composer), and Otto Harbach (lyricist and librettist of musical comedies).

This is an incredible collection of musical talent in the 1920's. I don't know of a comparable group today - but these men knew music and words and ran with it all!
