Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This primer offers some of the most enduring renditions of Gershwin songs--Billie Holiday's "Embraceable You," Benny Goodman's "Oh Lady, Be Good," Chet Baker's "But Not for Me"--along with a few more obscure readings. Johnny Hartman's "How Long Has This Been Goin' On" and "Bidin' My Time" put the singer's suaveness on excellent display, while Ray Charles's instrumental reading of "The Man I Love" is one of the finest pieces of his jazz piano work from the '50s. Unsurprisingly, newer cuts by Michael Feinstein and Diana Krall are stiff, adding nothing and actually managing to subtract quite a bit in the way of feel and empathy. Overall, though, a good introduction to Gershwin's pop work with his brother Ira. --Rickey Wright

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull lounge music March 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The reviews of this album sounded pretty good, but we were disappointed. These are slicked-up smoothed-over versions of some great classics. Instead, I love George and Ira Gershwin "Standards and Gems" for a more authentic sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Own" Album for any Gershwin fan July 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I do *not* agree at all with the one-star review currently displayed. This is a great album of Gershwin music performed by some of the greatest artists of the last 50+ years. The sound quality is also excellent. As far as I'm concerned, this is a "must own" album for any Gershwin fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hip-O Records you've out done yourself" April 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This eighteen (18) track collection features George & Ira's collaboration with some of the greats and near greats performing their material. The good people at Hip-O have come up with some of the most diverse tracks ever gathered for a tribute album, and it is superb.
From the beginning - Tony Bennett & Count Basie "STRIKE UP THE BAND", the Count has Tony swingin' in high time on this one - Ella Fitzgerald with Ellis Larkin "SOON" before her popular "Songbook Series" with Verve Records, Ella recorded this beautiful ballad on the DECCA label. Mel Torme "NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT" and "ISN'T IT A PITY" the "Velvet Fog" has never sounded better. Billie Holiday "EMBRACEABLE YOU" the song is a particular favorite of mine, and Billie knows what strings to pull to make it hers.
A must own for any Gershwin fan. The sound quality is excellent, and the variety is exceptional. Hip-O you've out done yourself with this awesome compilation by one of the greatest composers of the century - GERSHWIN!
Total Time: 56:54 on 18 Tracks/ Hip-O Records - HIPO 40120 (1998)
