5.0 out of 5 stars A true apprecation of George Gershwin. 15 May 2009
Having been collecting versions of George Gershwin's music over many years, I am always looking out for the lesser known tunes. To find "In the Mandarin's Orchid Garden" among the 32 tracks of this CD was a very great find!
When I played the CD the surprises were many. Elton John singing "Someone to watch over me", Jamie Callum "It ain't necessarily so!" (Even if he does get the words wrong!) and,joy of joys, Audrey Hepburn "How long has this been going on?". The last one still makes the hairs at the back of my neck rise!
This selection is a must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous! 10 Aug 2004
By S. Hapgood VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Absolutely sublime collection of George Gershwin covers. Some of the tracks may not be the best versions of the old songs and instrumentals that you will ever hear (Larry Adler's somewhat eccentric rendition of "Rhapsody In Blue" for instance lacks the seering emotional punch I'm used to with this piece, but I daresay it will grow on me). After a very stressful time lately Ella Fitzgerald's rendition of "Summertime", and Diana Krall's wickedly cool and smooth "S'Wonderful" (begs to be listened to with a cocktail in hand!) was just what I needed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best by far 10 Aug 2003
By Kate
This album encompases the best of Gershwin, by the best artists in the business. It provides one with a sense that he or she has bought "The album" that they have seached for their whole lives. A Gershwin lovers' collection will never be complete with out this one.
