Amazing HD-Vinyl 24/96 (RCA Living Stereo) George Gershwin – Rhapsody in Blue/An American in Paris (Wild)

This is the type of music that Arthur Fieldler excelled at, and Earl Wild is simply fabulous.
One danger with Gershwin is that his mixing of classical and jazz has flummoxed more than a few otherwise excellent conductors and pianists who seem to miss the jazz feel that the piece requires. Neither Fiedler nor Wild had this problem. The result is an exciting recording, and, consequently, my favorite one of these pieces.
This recording blows the ach-so-acclaimed Bernstein version literally out of the window.
