Paul Simon has been writing songs since the 1950s, and he’s still at it, writing with a command of his craft that places him with the likes of Mozart, Schubert, Gershwin, Lennon, McCartney, and the handful of others we might place at the pinnacle of the songwriting art.
The Jewish Museum of Maryland has an exhibition that chronicles Paul Simon’s amazing career and his unparalleled contribution to the world of music. It’s called, simply, Paul Simon: Words and Music. Marvin Pinkert is the Jewish Museum’s Director, and he joins Tom in the studio.
The exhibition opened yesterday and it will be there until the middle of January.
