The songs of George & Ira Gershwin

The songs of George and Ira Gershwin by Dominic Alldis

George and Ira Gershwin will forever be remembered as the songwriting team whose voice was synonymous with the sounds and style of the Jazz Age.  They composed over two-dozen scores for Broadway and Hollywood.  While today they are best remembered for numerous individual song hits, their greatest achievement may have been the elevation of musical comedy to an American art form.

In The songs of George & Ira Gershwin, Dominic recreates the ambiance of the Jazz Age, bringing to life many of their most enjoyable songs.

‘S Wonderful
A Foggy Day
But Not For Me
Embraceable You
Fascinating Rhythm
Blah, Blah, Blah
How Long Has This Been Going On
I Got Rhythm
I’ve Got A Crush On You
Isn’t It A Pity
Love Is Here To Stay
My Ship
Nice Work If You Can Get It
Someone To Watch Over Me
Strike Up The Band
The Girl I Love
They Can’t Take That Away From Me
