It's pretty obvious to anyone who's heard The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson is no slouch when it comes to song-writing. So who better to be given the keys to 102 unfinished Gershwin piano parts and be left to his own devices? Brian Wilson: Reimagines Gershwin ($13) features classic Gershwin covers as well as two songs that pick up where Gershwin left off. Presenting Gershwin to a new generation, he brings "I Loves You, Porgy," "Summertime," "Rhapsody In Blue," "I Got Rhythm," "S'Wonderful," and other standards to a contemporary place. These geniuses are a match made in music heaven. Hey Brian, please tackle the other 100 tracks soon.
