The repertoire of jazz musicians would be considerably smaller if the Gershwin brothers hadn’t lived. Here, guitarist Joe Pass gives a definitive demonstration of why the Gershwin’s music so beautifully fits the jazz requirement for logical harmonic structures and inspirational melodies. It is unlikely that "’S Wonderful" has ever swung harder or "Embraceable You" been embraced more tenderly. Shelly Manne, a drummer who was a passionate admirer of Gershwin’s music, is at his best here. Guitar support is provided by Pass’s longtime alter-ego, John Pisano.
