CD Reviews

Jazz masters playing Gershwin at their best
Nathan Peles | Sydney, Australia | 11/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I came across this album almost by accident, but let me reassure you - you won't be disappointed!Gershwin's music is always a pleasure, especially when you get to hear it performed by some of the all-time greats of Jazz.What makes this album so enjoyable is that the material will appeal to both jazz new-comers & veteran jazz lovers. Covering a wide range of styles - from swing to hard bop, sultry vocals to cool - it really goes to show how versatile Gershwin's music can be.Some of the tracks that really stand out are J. J. Johnson's stellar trombone solo of "Our Love is Here to Stay", Ella Fitzgerald's "I've Got a Crush on You" and most importantly Erroll Garner's energetic piano on "The Man I Love."A great jazz introduction, and a great "standard" for you jazz music collection."
