Description
George Gershwin would adore these virtuoso performances of his classics "Swanee," "I Got Rhythm," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Do It Again," "That Certain Feeling," and "Summertime" (so gorgeous!), as well as the rarities "Scandal Walk," "Idle Dreams," and the lovely ballad "So Am I." Jerry Willard's no slouch in the swing department, and his arrangements are harmonically complex, bringing a haunting Middle Eastern flavor, for example, to "My Man's Gone Now" from Porgy and Bess.

"Breathes new life and energy into this quintessential American voice while at the same time preserves the authentic spirit of the music by relaying primarily on piano rolls and transcriptions made by the composer…. A beautifully crafted and inspired record full of the effortless charm and character one associates with Gershwin's music."—Guitar Review

"As if a lutenist from the olden days had somehow been deposited in a Jazz Age hotel lounge."—All Music Guide
