When modern day artists embrace the work of an artist of a different era it shows what purity of style, form, and genuine creativity mean to an artform. Gershwin's music is one of the great treasures of true American music. These artists demonstrate their ability to step out of the marketing, social, and media hype that surrounds them and simply perform great music in their own unique style. It's not over-mixed, or over-produced; it's just right. This is a thoroughly enjoyable album. Imagine....Meatloaf singing Gershwin! Who'd-a thought it!!! It works!

This is a Lawrence "Larry" Cecil Adler album. Look him up. This explains all that harmonica work on it. He was exceptional.
