This January 23, 1985 twenty-two cent stamp of the USA commemorates the birth centenary of American composer Jerome Kern (1885-1945). Kern is shown working on a musical score with a pencil.

From wikipedia, "A native New Yorker, Kern created dozens of Broadway musicals in a career that lasted more than four decades. His musical innovations, such as 4/4 dance rhythms and the employment of syncopation and jazz progressions, built on, rather than rejected, earlier musical theatre tradition."
