5.0 out of 5 stars Gershwin DeFranco Peterson and company, 18 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Buddy De Franco - Gershwin (Audio CD)
Yep; it's a keeper.
Swinging ellegantly, DeFranco, Peterson and the rest of the (dangerously large) band work together beautifully (most of the arrangements are by Russ Garcia),
showing the beauty of Gershwin's tunes, as well as transforming them into something only jazz can achieve. Strings used here are hardly indinspensable, but they are not hindering the jazz feel of the album. And if it sounds over-sentimental at the time... Weeell... Gershwin fans won't mind it; am I right or am I right?

Buyers should, however be aware that this material can be found under various titles (issued by various labes), so check out the list of tunes before buying - maybe you already have this lovely music.
Also, although I'm not a hi-fi technology-oriented freak, I'd say that the sound quality is acceptable altough not mint-condition, state of the art (I'm pretty sure that songs were not taken from the original masters)...

So, if you love ellegant mainstream jazz, this is certainly something for you;
unattractive from the outside, this CD has some great music (+ original artwork and liner notes + additional liner notes).
Why this important series of CD hides the original art inside and uses this hideous non-design on the outside? Your guess is as good as mine.
