Favorite Gershwin song performances

Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, Carl Van Vechten Collection, [reproduction number, e.g., LC-USZ62-54231]

These are a few performances of Gershwin songs I discovered these past few years, which I think are exceptional.  The streaming music links are done through TinySong (a way to share GrooveShark links) or YouTube.

Embraceable You – Kiri Te Kanawa Dame Kiri brings the sauciness and confidence this song deserves.

Bidin’ my Time – Nat King Cole The best song ever to make you feel good about wasting – ehm – biding your time.

Our Love is Here to Stay – Glad This tight a cappella group did a whole Gerswhin album which includes a superb Embraceable You.

Fascinating Rhythm – Ella Fitzgerald Mellifluous and magnificent.
