AllMusic Review by

Issued in celebration of the centennial of the composer's birth, Gershwin Jazz is an engaging, smartly compiled collection which spans the decades to encompass material by everyone from Billie Holiday ("Let's Call the Whole Thing Off") to Marcus Roberts ("Someone to Watch Over Me"); its 16 tracks also include highlights ranging from Benny Goodman's "I Got Rhythm" to Ella Fitzgerald's "I've Got a Crush on You" to Dexter Gordon's "How Long Has This Been Going On?"
