AMBIANCE

David Wright was flirting with disaster when he decided to arrange George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”
for four female voices and to write his own lyrics.
The result, however, was brilliantly innovative, weaving the textures of the time-tested orchestration into a vocal tapestry, and spinning a witty, Porter-esque commentary on a day in the life of the Big Apple.
