It s 1924, and with just a few weeks notice, George Gershwin has been asked to compose a new concerto that exemplifies American music. In his search for a new melody, Gershwin realizes that American music is much like its people: a great melting pot of sounds, rhythms, and harmonies. JoAnn Kitchel s illustrations capture the 1920 s in all their art-deco majesty. Includes a CD of Rhapsody in Blue performed by George Gershwin (1925 piano roll) and the Columbia Jazz Band, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas.
