When George Gershwin died suddenly from a brain tumor in 1937 at the age of 38, he was a widely renowned musician with a long career as a composer of concert pieces and songs for Hollywood movies and the Broadway stage. However, he hardly could have imagined that his works would remain influential so long after his passing, or that they would become jazz standards performed and recorded by countless artists over the decades. This outstanding 2-CD set presents a wide selection of Gershwin classics (in most cases with lyrics by his brother Ira) sung by some of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time.
