    At the close of the twenties, both George and Ira Gershwin were at the top of their games, both artistically and successfully, and yet they both remained driven to improve on their craft.

    Where others may have sat back and relaxed for a while, both men felt that their best work was still ahead of them, and the consistency of their output served as evidence that their ambitions were well founded.

    This show captures a time when the brothers’ work together became synergistic, with each one providing a perfect foil for the other. Featured tracks include;

    How Long Has This Been Going On? – Ray Charles w/ Count Basie Orchestra
