    Gershwin

    Thanks, Tom. Those are very nice arrangements of Gershwin favorites. You played them very well. I particularly liked your performance of "Fascinating Rhythm."

    Even though these pieces are more of Gershwin"s pop-type music, I believe it's great that they are being posted on PS. Perhaps they will tempt some who are a little uneasy about classical music to listen to more music on PS. Isn't that one of the purposes of PS: to make classical music more accessible?

    Ah, yes perfect party music when the people are gathered, sipping on the welcome drink before the dinner. I can almost see you sitting there with your grand, dressed in tail of course, smiling to people, flirting to the ladies ;). I agree with Monica, can I hire you? :)

    Thanks for the comments about the music, and also thank you Robert for imagining that I could still flirt with the ladies.

    I enjoyed these immensely, Tom! All credit to you, though Robert may have pictured you while listening, this red-sequined dress kept floating through my imagination ... mmmm. :lol:

    Anyway, I LOVED the man I love and enjoyed all the others as well. Thanks for this great post!

    You play them really nice and it´s really inspiring. (I´m looking for some Solo-pieces of Gershwin besides the "Rhapsody in Blue" for a Gershwin-evening, may be at the end of this year.)
