George Gershwin made well over 100 piano rolls between 1915 and 1925. Although he had some reluctance to take up the piano after neglecting it for many years, he eventually realized the enormous profits to be made in addition to his work at the time as a Tin Pan Alley song-plugger and later a staff composer at Harms. He played many hits of the day (by Jerome Kern, Harry Akst and Irving Berlin) as well as his own compositions, and though the songs gathered here will be unfamiliar to most listeners, Gershwin's performances are striking, thanks in part to the technology employed by Elektra/Nonesuch in the re-recording of these rolls on a nine-foot Yamaha Disklavier grand piano.
A must for all Gershwin lovers
beautiful! love this. my fav is buzzin the bee it is so playful
yo i have the 1st vol. and not this one...
don't know if this is good or not, guys. so is it gershwin playing and the track was remastered, or is the entire thing re-played by someone else? I luv the 1st vol. 4 sure.
I especially liked "Arrah Go On I'm Gonna Go Back to Oregon"! listen to the end of the preview...
