All you need to know about what I think of a certain legendary sibling composing team of the 20th Century is that I used to own two cats, and one of their names was Gershwin (the other Sondheim).
The Brothers Gershwin – musical George, verbal Ira – were a pair of creative geniuses for the price of one, a songwriting team who prodigiously authored Great American Songbook standards that have not only endured but rudely remind us “they just don’t write ‘em like that anymore,” more’s the pity. Their work was as inspired and romantic as it was accessible in its sentiment and unerring in their melodies.
