I first heard this song in 1985 at River House in New York City. I was nearing my twenty-first birthday, and my directing mentor, Joshua Logan, had me accompany him as he bellowed out the song.
September Songs – Willie Nelson
At first, I did not care much for Kurt Weill’s mournful composition. It was haunting, and just felt so sad. But Mr. Logan loved the song!
July 12, 1988, Mr. Logan passed away. Six weeks later, while still mourning his departure, I remembered the song o. September 1st. I listened to a recording, and I’ve not missed a a September 1st without listening to this song
Happy September, Mr. Logan…
