If you were fortunate enough to hear Joanna MacGregor play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the UO at the Waterfront last night and would like to hear her do so again, her recording of the piece has recently been re–released on Warner Classics (2564678306). Even more enticingly, the recording is of the original, pared–down jazz band scoring, not the bigger, blowsier Grofe orchestration usually heard in concert. This two–CD set is at budget–price, and also includes MacGregor playing the Piano Concerto and a selection of Gershwin’s solo piano pieces. Highly recommended.
