Gershwin - Modern Arrangements of Old Favourites Includes accompaniment CD


From the Publisher

The compositions of George Gershwin have a special place in jazz music. Every professional jazz musician knows the Gershwin songs. Although composed long ago - in the first half of the previous century - they remain ever popular. Simply because of the genius of the melodies, rhythms, and texts, the Gershwin tunes have transcended their original conception and are still extremely popular. In his own characteristic manner, Rik Elings has arranged these Gershwin melodies in a contemporary and interesting fashion. Everyone - amateur musicians, students of jazz, and audiences alike - will take pleasure in Eling’s inspiring exploration of the Gershwin oeuvre. Enjoy!
