Overview

Gershwin Jazz Round Midnight is an enjoyable budget-priced sampler of Verve artists -- including Billie Holiday, Fred Astaire, Shirley Horn, Roy Eldridge, Sarah Vaughan, Anita O'Day, Billie Holiday, Stan Getz and Ella Fitzgerald -- performing 15 of the Gershwins' best-known songs. While this collection is hardly definitive, it is quite enjoyable, sporting an appealingly low-key, seductive atmosphere and several dynamite performances.
