The Great American Songbook is comprised of the most significant work of top early 20th-century American jazz, pop and show tunes artists. Folks like Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin are responsible for writing many of the standards that American culture was built on. Today on the show we honor their legacy and discuss 3 albums that feature GAS songs.
Brian Wilson – Brian Wilson Re-imagines Gershwin (Andy)
Frank Sinatra – In the Wee Small Hours (Don)
Jeff Lynne – Long Wave (Dude)
