Notes & Reviews:

"[Bernstein] was in love with American music, rhythm was his forte, and it paid off in superb performances like this...this 1959 performance [of Rhapsody in Blue]...is a classic that has never been topped. One is just swept away in the jazzy rhythm and swagger, the combustible energy, and that big 20th Century urban melody. It, and this American in Paris, will belong in everyone's collection into the indefinite future...." -Haldeman, ARG
