After the musical portraits of Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and Harry Warren, it's time for the most well-known of them all: George Gershwin, the man behind the ever-green Summertime – among many others.
This evening Peter Asplund has his constant companion bassist Hans Andersson and drummer Johan Löfcrantz Ramsay with him. And as always in the Songwriters' Guide there are two specially invited guests.
"To make Gershwin justice I have invited a couple of favorites: the Danish pianist Jacob Christoffersen and Viktoria Tolstoy, one of Sweden's absolute greatest jazz singers," says Peter Asplund.
- Peter Asplund trumpet/vocals
- Hans Andersson double bass
