    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.
