Cat No: NOT2CD696


Some of the greatest songs from the Great American Songbook, sung by some of the world’s finest singers. And all thanks to two brothers, George and Ira Gershwin. Singers such as Tony Bennett (Strike Up The Band), Julie Andrews (He Loves And She Loves) and Sammy Davis Jr. (The Man That Got Away) testify to the Gershwin genius, for theirs were songs that lit up both stage and screen, and continue to spread light into the 21st Century.
