McGovern as sophisticated pop singer, effectively handling an album of Gershwin material. Includes "Of Thee I Sing," the theme from a show in which she starred in 1987.
Anyone who loves Gershwin will love this album. Performing with a fantastic group of jazz players, McGovern shows her superb musicality and sense of style, as well as incredible vocal variety. The arrangements are wonderfully unusual and original, and they put a new spin on many of the songs. Also, the ordering of the numbers is first-rate, with many combined into a medley. I've been obsessed with this album for many years and continue to play it with new delight, discovering something new each time. A must-have for any Gershwin fan!
