Album Notes and Credits
Full title: George Gershwin: The Ultimate Collection.
Performers include: Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Bing Crosby, Arthur Fiedler, Boston Pops Orchestra.
George Gershwin: The Ultimate Collection is a nice double-disc set that collects definitive performances of Gershwin standards from Rhapsody in Blue to Funny Face. It's a wildly eclectic collection, containing cuts from Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Audrey Hepburn, Sarah Vaughan, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, and the Boston Pops Orchestra, thereby offering a good portrait of the depth of Gershwin's material and the way it lends itself to so many different styles. It's not necessarily a definitive collection -- he wrote so much great music, it's nearly impossible to condense it all into one set -- but it's one terrific sampler. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
