Description
From the 1920s to the present day, the music of Gershwin has never gone out of style, and it doubtless never will. These diverse performances by artists from the classical, jazz, pop, and Broadway realms attest to its enduring elan and pizzazz. Highlights include "I Got Rhythm" by Ethel Waters, "Someone to Watch Over Me" by Frank Sinatra, "The Man I Love" by Billie Holiday, "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" by Fred Astaire, "A Foggy Day" by Rosemary Clooney, "They All Laughed" by Tony Bennett, "There's a Boat Dat's Leavin' Soon for New York" by Cab Calloway, "My Man's Gone Now" by Sarah Vaughan, "I Loves You, Porgy" by Miles Davis, "It Ain't Necessarily So" by Aretha Franklin, and "Isn't It a Pity" by Mel Torme.

"Given his seemingly effortless ability at melding such disparate forms as jazz and gospel with his own rare melodic gifts, it's not hard to view George Gershwin as America's first classical crossover artist. But as this glorious, 41-track double-disc introduction to Gershwin's epochal repertoire quickly demonstrates, that assessment woefully shortchanges the sheer grandeur of 'Rhapsody in Blue' or the sultry earthiness of 'Summertime,' both in original performances by the composer…. Choices represent not only a who's who of 20th-century pop and saloon singers ... but deftly underscore Gershwin's transcendent synthesis of style, era, and distinctly American subject matter."—All Music Guide
