The Very Best of the Gershwin Song Book

The Very Best of the Gershwin Song Book

by Ella Fitzgerald



The Very Best of the Gershwin Song Book reprises 12 of the performances from one of Ella Fitzgerald's very best Song Books, which results in a compilation of uniformly splendid music that nevertheless should make listeners want to hear everything she recorded during the sessions. Highlights include her nearly definitive versions of "Oh, Lady Be Good," "'S Wonderful," and "The Man I Love."
