American Pop

One family. Four generations. Zalmie had talent but fame wasn't in the cards. Tony had the right stuff but life got in the way. Benny had a brush with success but had to let it slip away. So it was up to Pete to grab it, hold it and make himself heard. The story of a Russian Jewish family of musicians that parallels the history of American popular music in the 20th century.
