CD Reviews

The definitive Gershwin collection
M. O'CONNOR CLARKE | Toronto, Canada | 07/29/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thanks to my brother for pointing me towards this one. According to him it has "a waaaarrrrgh-tastic rendition of the full orchestral version of Rhapsody in Blue (the sort of thing that blasts through your head when you walk half-way across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan and then, ever so slowly, turn around)."I have to agree.It also has some of the best, most heart&gut-wrenching versions of other Gershwin standards ("A Foggy Day", bits of Porgy & Bess, etc.)Buy it - you'll love it."

"I first heard a cut of George Cables on Seattle's KING FM classic station, part of his solo concert for the Seattle Art Museum. Even though it was on the car radio, I could tell there was a yearning magic in his playing. I borrowed this CD from a friend. All I can say is "Wow.""
