Plays George Gershwin - The American Soul
by Bill Charlap
Released: Apr 2005
Label: Blue Note Records
The superb jazz pianist Bill Charlap pays tribute to George Gershwin with the help of his trio, guest soloists and a large ensemble. The spotlighted soloists include Phil Woods, Frank Wess, Nicholas Payton, Slide Hampton, and Bill Charlap who plays completely differently with the small groups as opposed to a larger outfit. Very satisfying.
