Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue: Marcus Roberts Trio, Seiji Ozawa, Cond. (2003)

From WQXR: “Rhapsody in Blue, George Gershwin’s most famous composition drives discussion about what makes classical classical and what makes jazz jazz. But in 2003, Seiji Ozawa led the Berlin Philharmonic in a performance that brought a new perspective to the concert hall favorite. They were joined by the Marcus Roberts Trio, which features Roberts on piano, Roland Guerin on bass and Jason Marsalis on drums. The trio punctuated the Gershwin classic with improvised flourishes and jazzy interludes, as if in the intimate setting of a club. The sounds, combined with the open air of Berlin’s Waldbühne, contribute to something magically summery. It’s pretty much perfect.”
