The quality of the original, 30 Jun 2001
The best piano songs, no matter if they're classical or popular, always depends on WHO performs the songs or WHOSE version it is. That doesn't apply to "The Piano Rolls", because it's Gershwin BY Gershwin. The rolls got his spirit, and it's hard to believe, for example, there's a better version of "Raphsody in Blue" if what you want it's just a piano and "just" Gershwin. Excelent and rare works are here, like "Swanee" and "When You Want 'Em You Can't Get 'Em When...". It's like Gershwin in a good mood playing in a bar in 1927. Don't die before listening to this.
