Review: George Gershwin heard music all around him--in the clickety-clack of trains and the noise of crowded streets--and took inspiration from classical concerts and Harlem supper clubs. This book follows his life while delving deeper into how new music developed in his head and eventually became his famous composition of "Rhapsody in Blue". The musical terms, unique fonts, and blue hues help bring this wonderful story to life.
