Alti & Bassi : Favoloso Gershwin : 00  1 CD : George & Ira Gershwin

Alti & Bassi : Favoloso Gershwin

Review: "Il Favoloso" is our favorite all-male Italian quartet's singing tribute to legendary American composer George Gershwin. Eight of the 11 covers here are by George, one, a lovely a cappella rendition of "The Man I Love," is by George and his brother Ira. One tune, A.E. Negri's "Charleston Prelude," and Zapponi-Luttazzi's title tune, complete the songlist, most of which are live and accompanied. Favorites include "Scandal Walk," "Naughty Baby," "I Got Rhythm," Medley, including "Preludio No. 2," "An American in Paris" and "Rhapsody in Blue," and the bluesy "Summertime." A fun, entertaining collection from Alti & Bassi!

Songlist: Scandal Walk, Naughty Baby, Rose of Madrid, The Man I Love, I Got Rhythm, Rhapsody Medley, Liza, Summertime, Charleston Prelude, I'd Rather Charleston, Il Faboloso Gershwin

Glad : A Cappella Gershwin : 00  1 CD : George & Ira Gershwin : cgi 1166

Glad : A Cappella Gershwin

Review: Glad began as a progressive Christian rock band in the early seventies. Rich complex arrangements and lush vocal melodies have been their trademark. Each of their early albums had one a cappella tune included. As an experiment, in 1988, they recorded the A Cappella Project which was received with such enthusiasm that they have been alternating instrumental accompaniment with a cappella albums ever since. Glad singing Gershwin is a total treat. All the standards are here "I've Got Rhythm," "The Girl I Love," "Someone To Watch Over Me" etc. To this reviewer "The Gershwin Medley" is nothing short of fabulous!

Songlist: I Got Rhythm, The Girl I Love, Our Love Is Here To Stay, Embraceable You, The Gershwin Medley, They All Laughed, A Foggy Day, Little Jazz Bird, But Not For Me, They Can't Take That Away From Me, Someone To Watch Over Me
