    This is so nice. I love the Gershwins, and I am now just sinking into Willie’s captivating voice.

    Amazon led me to some other albums of his, which looks like money well spent.

    Thank you.

    The ultimate Gershwin interpretation is Ella Fitzgerald’s Gershwin Songbook CD’s. Willie Nelson’s Gershwin’s interpretation is good but does measure up to Ella Fitzgerald’s.
