Happy Birthday, George Gershwin!

We love a Gershwin tune; how about you?

George Gershwin, born 117 years ago today, has long been our favorite composer of the Cladrite Era (though in recent years, Cole Porter’s been making up ground in that horse race). Gershwin’s life was far too short, but he managed to squeeze an amazing number of memorable songs and orchestral works into his 39 years.

Happy birthday, George, and thanks for the tunes!
