The Great Gershwin (Episode #1347)
KQED Plus: Sat, Aug 24, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
When this show from 1972 opens with "Of Thee I Sing" you know there'll be "wunnerful, erful, wunnerful " music to follow. Norma Zimmer fills the bill with the haunting "Someone To Watch Over Me", Bobby & Cissy dance to "The Man I Love", and nobody plays "Rhapsody In Blue" like Bob Ralston. Joe Livoti reminds us just how beautiful "Summertime" is and Sandi and Salli have fun with "Do, Do, Do". "S'Wonderful" certainly sums up the music of the great Gershwin.

Bob Lido and the entire cast wind things up with a toe-tapping Dixieland medley of "Ain't She Sweet", "Baby Face", and "Five Foot Two".
