The essential George Gershwin by George Gershwin( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Gershwin is one of the most influential, and enduring composers of music from the 20th century. With over 2 hours of music performed by some of the world's greatest recording artists, the music covers Jazz, R & B, POP, and Broadway. Plus some of his own forays into the 'Classical' style. Appearing on this collection are such greats as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett, Michael Feinstein, and many more. These appearances alone prove how much respect in music Gershwin has. This Review by Acadamy Award Songwriter, Diane Warren says it all. "The remarkable thing about Gershwin's music is that the songs have incredible staying power. The melodies touch people today as mush as they did 60, 70 years ago."
