Jazz Love: The Best of Gershwin

We're so behind on posting on our little composers project on 12, but a couple weeks ago we listened to George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.  And it was wonderful.  I want to dive into all of Gershwin's works and know them inside and out, but, right now, I will satisfy myself with some of his great show tunes:

Also: the embedding is disabled by request, but don't miss this live version of 'A Foggy Day in London Town' with Nat King Cole on piano and Mel Torme doing vocals.
