A Songwriter’s Journey Toward the Great Whatever

After 25 years in the music business, at age 50, musician and poet Rob Morsberger was being compared to Randy Newman, Tom Waits and even Stephen Foster.  A few months later, Rob was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Rather than succumb to this grim reality, Rob used it to fuel the most prolific period in his songwriting career – determined to utilize whatever remained of his physical and spiritual resources  to explore through words and music the transient nature of life, the inevitability of death and the infinite magic in the detail of a single moment. A Gesture and a Word is a portrait of a man who exemplified the saying, Ars longa – Vita Brevis  (Art is long – Life is short).

Featuring

Rob  Morsberger, Suzzy Roche, Marshall Crenshaw, Stewart Lerman, Jon Herington, Brad Roberts, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Élan Morsberger, Wendy Morsberger, Philip Morsberger, Ann Buonacomo, Robin Young.
