Product Description:

Composers: George Gershwin; Ira Gershwin; Irving Caesar; Buddy DeSylva.
Personnel: Patti Austin (vocals); WDR Big Band.
Anyone with Patti Austin's excellent pipes and the support of a record label could easily have recorded an album of straightforward George Gershwin covers and called it a day, but Austin is not one to play it safe. On AVANT-GERSHWIN she reshapes and reconfigures the old standards in exciting new ways. Her sultry turn on "Love Walked In," with minimal piano accompaniment, uncovers an almost angst-filled facet to the song. With expert backing by the WDR Big Band, she swings "Lady Be Good," "Swanee," and "Who Cares" as hard-bop numbers, replete with inspired scatting.
