Inscribed by Swift to Constance „For Constance, with love - Kay Swift“. Swift was the first woman to score a hit musical completely. Written in 1930, the Broadway musical Fine and Dandy includes some of her best known songs; the song “Fine and Dandy” has become a jazz standard. "Can't We Be Friends?" (1929) was her biggest hit song. Swift also arranged some of the music of George Gershwin posthumously, such as the prelude "Sleepless Night" (1946). Provenance: From the estate of Gerswin's longtime companion Kay Swift.
