Lady Be Good

news & reviews

  • about this album

    While not the Gershwin brothers' first foray into Broadway, Lady Be Good was their first monumentally successful work of musical theatre. The show was notably variable, often altering arrangements from night to night; this record features as close to a “definitive” version as possible, including arrangements and details taken from sketches and scores used over the course of the musical’s original run.
