George Gershwin

Fascinatin' Rhythm Program #2041

There are two George Gershwins – the writer of percussive pop tunes early in his career and then the composer of lovely lyrical melodies later on. But it wasn’t that simple. The two styles mixed, merged, separated, and then mixed and merged again. Together, they create the Gershwin style.
