Rhapsody in Blue, conducted by Leonard Bernstein.
Duke Ellington - Rhapsody in Blue
Composer: George Gershwin/
I hadn’t heard this Ellington arrangement of the piece before.
"Lullaby" by George Gershwin, played by Cuarteto Latinoamericano. One of my favorite Gershwin compositions, fo sho.
Gene Kelly in An American in Paris (1951, dir. Vincente Minnelli) Art director Preston Ames designed the set in the style of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting Chocolat Dancing In Bar Darchille.
As soon as I saw this still, the music immediately popped into my head.
This one always gets me choked up. I love the music, the art, everything about it. It was glorious to see this on the big screen - I strongly recommend renting the DVD. Also - watch for a Gershwin cameo at the 6:20 mark.
