"... represents a return to respectability for Hancock ... by far the best thing he's done since joining Verve in 1995 ... the breadth and depth of Hancock's artistry throughout this magnificent collection is absolutely stunning ... he has crafted one for the ages."
- JazzTimes.com

"... Hancock’s striking tribute runs deeper and wider than most, clearly revealing Gershwin’s cross-stylistic imprint, from jazz to pop to classical ... in the end, the real stars are Hancock the great American keyboardist and the great American songwriter he’s toasting. A-."
- Entertainment Weekly

"What makes this recording worth the purchase is Joni Mitchell. She is a fine, fine jazz singer. Mitchell's The Man I Love and Summertime couple her superbly with Wayne Shorter, who plays some of the most pragmatic soprano saxophone around. Stevie Wonder adds his distinctive harmonica on this tune as well as his vocals and harmonica on a funky, serpentine reading of St. Louis Blues."
- All About Jazz

Conceived to celebrate the 100th birthday of George Gershwin, Herbie Hancock recruited guests including Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder and Chick Corea to cover the Gershwin brothers' best loved songs (as well as songs by other composers of the same era) on this 1998 release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
