Nothing much to say. Great and very "refreshing" covers from the great american composer George Gerschwin by an all new generation of wonderfull musicians.
Awsome this "morscheeba sommertime"...A "love-tuned" album.

A refreshing, and sometimes surprising take on Gershwin 3 Nov 1998
By TimmBenson@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like most of the Red, Hot releases, this CD is eclectic. The joys are found in the individual performances as opposed the the album as a whole. If you ever wondered about the african-american influences on George Gershwin, listen to Baaba Maal's take on "Bess you Is My Woman Now" it will break your heart with its beauty. Skye and Hubert Laws show us again why "Summertime" is one of the most covered songs of all time. Smoke City reinvents "They Can't Take That Away From Me" with their island, trip-hop beat. And, don't miss taking a journey with David Bowie and Angelo Badalemente on "Foggy Day" - it's moody and delicious.

gershwin is always good 10 May 2007
By Darryl K. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
two years ago, i got this idea for a themed concert. i called it the 'the red hot dance concert' and asked the teachers to select songs from the red hot series, red hot and blue, red hot and dance, red hot and rio, red hot and gershwin and any others we could get our red hot hands on were under immediate consideration.

for some odd reason, 'red hot and gershwin' got passed over quite a bit.

i think i know why. the range of songs and treatments are great ambient music. i love davina's raspy vocals on 'i was doing all right'. they are a great compliment to the baaba maal at the end of the disc. and sinead o'connor's breathy, waif sound is a blessing to 'someone to watch over me', considering that linda ronstadt's blare-through is still upon us from some twenty years ago. stereolab's 's'wonderful' is also chic, cosmo-swirling stuff.

but nothing here really gets the foot to tapping. and it really doesn't need to, either. just put it on and shake the martinis!

Meh. 30 Jun 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Red, Hot and Blue, and also really enjoyed Red, Hot and Rio, so I suppose two out of three isn't so bad.

Red, Hot and Rhapsody sounds like something to be played at a funeral. I saw that another reviewer had written "inspired" as one of his adjectives to describe this album, and I actually read it as "insipid."

I suppose, if it was over 100 degrees outside, and I was drinking serious adult beverages, this would be appropriate to play. It's so slow and dirge-like, I can't imagine any other circumstance in which I'd want to listen to it.

Uneven collection, but the high points are exceptional 16 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Trying to bring so many different artists to cover so many different types of material is a tough project. This entry in the Red Hot... series isn't the best, but it has some of the brightest spots. Most of the best moments are near the end of the disc, especially Sinead O'Connor's "Someone to Watch over Me" and the atmospheric "Bess You Is my Woman Now" and "A Foggy Day in London Town". I use 'foggy' to put my kid to sleep.

a lot of good stuff, though not for everyone 5 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Natalie Merchant alone makes this CD worthwhile. There are also 5 or 6 other tracks that I enjoy (Sarah Cracknell, Luscious Jackson, and Smoke City in particular), and the jazzy-grooviness (*for lack of a better word) makes this album a great way to balance your collection. Don't expect to like all the tracks, however; some of these are pretty 'interesting' interpretations and a few I wouldn't want to hear more than once.
