With this, my latest album celebrating the timeless melodies of one of America’s and the world’s greatest composers, I have the chance to showcase it all - classical, blues, jazz, Latin, and folk music! This is the legacy of George Gershwin who continues to inspire musicians of every persuasion and instrument - and of course, me.
Nobody made music more accessible than the great Gershwin. To this day – and for all time – his music resonates with and relates to people of every culture and walk of life. No other composer brings together such diverse cultures and musical forms, blending art and entertainment, while connecting artists and listeners in ways that effortlessly transcend generational divides and perspectives.
It is a great honor and pleasure to reinterpret some of George Gershwin’s most celebrated compositions and in ways that I hope highlight his incomparable genius, while presenting them in fresh and imaginative styles.
Truly, we will never say “goodbye” to this greatest of 20th century composers. As this recording makes clear - Our Love Is Here to Stay!
