The Gershwins and Me: A Personal History in Twelve Songs by Michael Feinstein
The Gershwins and Me: A Personal History in Twelve Songs

maggieb543, November 22, 2013

This is a beautiful book and very entertaining. It was hard to put down because the stories about George and Ira Gershwin are so connected to 20th century American history. It was useful to learn about the collaborations that created such wonderful music. And the best thing about this book was getting the context of each composition and hearing the music in my head as I read. Having an included CD with authentic renditions is an added bonus. Michael Feinstein's passion for this music, his writing skills and his humor are just fascinating reading!
