History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

John Treville Latouche, American lyricist, died when only 38 years old, leaving behind a legacy of beautiful and stirring lyrics. His collaborators included Duke Ellington, Vernon Duke, Earl Robinson, Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Moross, Douglas Moore, and many more musicians of note. He wrote lyrics for many Broadway hits, including "Cabin in the Sky" (1940) and "The Golden Apple" (1954). Latouche wrote the lyrics for the theme from "On the Waterfront". His most famous song is probably "Ballad for Americans", written with Earl Robinson for the WPA production of "Sing for Your Supper" (1937).
