    After completing the rather astonishing opera “Porgy and Bess”, the Gershwins returned to doing what their audience loved them for – writing songs that accompanied stories.

    With the emphasis on films and Hollywood rather than stages and Broadway, the brothers found themselves working on the west coast, away from their beloved New York City. Nevertheless, inspiration continued to flow, with memorable songs pouring out of them.

    Featured tracks include;

    I Loves You Porgy – Nina Simone

    I Loves You Porgy – James Brown

    There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon – Miles Davis

    I Can’t Get Started – Bunny Berigan

    Slap That Bass – Ella Fitzgerald

    Promenade (Walking the Dog) – Michael Tilson Thomas

    They All Laughed – Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong

    Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off – Ella and Louis

    They Can’t Take That Away from Me – Red Garland Quintet
