Willie Nelson Delves in Gershwin Standards

Since Willie Nelson became an embodiment of country music, many tend to overlook his beginnings when the artist didn’t shy away from crooning and inflecting his vocals in a jazzy manner, so those who see the veteran as an outlaw in bandana will be surprised with the February 26th release of “Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin” where he not only delivers the evergreens in style but also duets with Cyndi Lauper, who in the last few years established herself as a blues performer, and Sheryl Crow. Of course, the selection is rather predictable yet, given it’s Nelson, a charm is to be served in spades.

There are eleven cuts on there:
