ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"It's wonderful to hear Ira's intelligent lyrics in songs both famous and obscure. Bravo to Mark Nadler for making this tribute to Ira Gershwin so special." Michael Strunsky, Trustee of The Ira and Leonore Gershwin Trusts.

Pianist/singer Mark Nadler brings new depth and meaning to standards such as "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Long Ago (And Far Away)" and "Embraceable You", while also introducing the listener to rarely heard gems like "I Love To Rhyme", "It Happens Ev'ry TIme" and "Dissertation On The State Of Bliss". The readings range from intimate and romantic to brassy to humorous. Every nuance of Ira Gershwin's formidable body of work is explored and expressed. The piano playing is dazzling and the vocals are rich and emotional. This is a must have for anyone who loves the popular music of the first half of the 20th Century.
