Rob Holub: “The Song Is You”

Here’s a video of Rob Holub singing “The Song Is You” at Tuesday night’s Megan Abbott/Arthur Phillips reading, which raised nearly $400 in donations for Union Settlement.

In addition to readings from Megan and Arthur, the event also featured a short talk by jazz historian Will Friedwald, who explained the significance of “The Song Is You” in 20th-century American music, like why it was embraced by bebop pioneers and Frank Sinatra a decade after it was first introduced to the public. Rob also sang one of his original compositions; New Yorkers will be able to see him at the Rockwood Music Hall on August 22.
