Yes, Rhapsody in Blue is one of my favorite songs, and Porgy and Bess is a fantastic opera/play/whatever it'd be called. Ella and Louis doing Summertime is beautiful...

one of the greatest songwriters ever. he said that he always had a tune in his head, was constantly writing, and that he had too many songs in his head to write them all down.

Gershwin is brilliant... I personally like his piano concerto in F the best, specifically movement III.
