Reimagines Gershwin – Brian Wilson

51ZnTQzAL-L._SL500_AA300_Well the story goes that the Gershwin family asked Brian Wilson to complete two of George Gershwin’s unfinished songs, and also to lend his style to some of the classics, so here we have this wonderful happy music, Brian sounds on fine form, his wonderful band are, as ever, brilliant, The classical tracks sound wonderful, arranged by Paul Mertens, it is a very catchy album, I think the emotional quality in Brian’s voice really brings out the best in ‘I loves you Porgy’ and ‘Someone to watch over me’ It starts out with a lovely vocal prelude of ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ which is also the closing coda of the album as well, just a hint of what would have been a wonderful full track, Brian’s mother said he was able to hum that track aged four! so its most appropriate that at age 66 hewas able to finally put it out there on record! I think the album will be a firm favourite, and also introduce people who maybe don’t know either Brian Wilson or George Gershwin to their music.
