Arlen was a wonderful performer in his own right (his father was a Cantor in Buffalo, NY - Harold's birthplace) - examples can be found on the outstanding biographical DVD of him called Somewhere Over the Rainbow: Harold Arlen. If you're not familiar w/ American popular music from the first half of the 20th century, then there are plenty of other composers to explore!
