After spending our previous two shows focused on George Gershwin’s longer (and wordless) compositions, we can now proceed – and progress- toward a number of popular songs that best represent the work of both George and Ira as writing partners.
This show features some of their best work together, written at a time when they stood head and shoulders above any and all competitors.
Featured tracks include;
Maybe – Ella Fitzgerald
Clap Yo’ Hands – The Hi-Los
Do Do Do – Nellie McKay
Someone to Watch Over Me – Frank Sinatra
Someone to Watch Over Me – Willie Nelson
He Loves and She Loves – Sarah Vaughan
High Hat – Fred Astaire
My One and Only – Fred Astaire
‘s Wonderful – Ella Fitzgerald
