Dudamel and Hancock Celebrates George Gershwin

I found this great performance by the LA philharmonic of the Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin with Herbie Hancock and Dudamel. You can see what an outstanding performance this is of a classic.

Rhapsody in Blue is probably the most renowned of American George Gershwin’s compositions, and it a blend of classical and jazz styles. Solo piano with Herbie Hancock and jazz ‘band’ lead by Gustavo Dudamel, this is a real delight.

This is definitely one of the classics and one of my very earliest joys in music. I remember listening to this music when I was quite young and being fascinated by it. This particular performance is great, and Hancock seems to be really enjoying himself with the orchestra and Dudamel. I hope you enjoy it.
