Default Rhapsody in blue

Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue = perfection

It is absolutely beautiful. And, I also like Bernstein's and Previn's interpretation. Comments?

I'm not bout' about it, but I can't argue its brilliance. My favorite Gershwin tune is Little Jazz Bird. Gershwin is reputed to be the missing link between classical and Jazz. That's cool.

yea i went to george gershwin concert, done by the melbourne symphony orchestra it was all great, except the fact that the songs with vocals were sung by a soprano. rar. she sung the most annoying version of summertime. went home and listened to the billie holiday version to stop me from killing people. i like george. they played rhapsody in blue and heaps of others it was great.
