Description
From entertainer and PBS host Michael Feinstein comes this beautifully produced and illustrated account of the lives and legacies of George and Ira Gershwin, told through the stories of a dozen of their greatest songs and accompanied by an original CD of those songs, performed by Feinstein, a five-time Grammy nominee. Now a leading preservationist and promoter of the popular songs known as the Great American Songbook, Feinstein was just 20 years old when he got the chance to catalog the personal archives of his hero Ira Gershwin. The young man blossomed under Gershwin's mentorship and Ira was reinvigorated by Feinstein's zeal for his and George's legacy. Here Feinstein shares remarkable stories and reminiscences about the music that defined American popular song, along with rare Gershwin memorabilia he's collected through the years. From "Strike Up the Band" to "Love Is Here to Stay," each of the 12 chapters explores the Gershwin brothers' lives, illuminating what the music meant to them, and telling the stories of how their iconic tunes came to life, with photos, sheet music, posters, personal notes, and other ephemera from the Gershwins and Feinstein's own archives.

"Frisky, affectionate, lushly illustrated, deeply informed and profoundly respectful."Kirkus Reviews
