Review

Review Text In the pantheon of jazz singers, the great tunes of George and Ira Gershwin have always been favorites. Special vocalists can make these compositions their own, elevating each number by the way they phrase, emote, or interpret without reinterpreting. That innate ability to take a well-worn standard and invigorate it is well documented within these 16 tracks. Easily among the highlights are Nat King Cole's "Embraceable You," Carmen McRae's "The Man I Love," Dakota Staton's "A Foggy Day," Johnny Hartman's "How Long Has This Been Going On?," Nina Simone's forever classic "Summertime," the lesser-known "Love Walked In" by Abbey Lincoln, and Mel Tormé's fun and funny "Do Do Do." You also get two tracks from Sarah Vaughan, who had a singular command of Gershwin like nobody else. This is a solid collection of vocal magic from top to bottom, and can be recommended to all. ~ Michael G. Nastos
