George and Ira Gershwin didn't set out to write what have since become jazz standards, but jazz musicians have found that the chord progressions and melody lines of their songs provide great platforms for improvisation. 

We’ll hear their music performed in a variety of styles by a variety of musicians, both instrumental and vocal. The Jazz Excursion is heard on KRCC 91.5 and streaming on krcc.org, Sunday evenings 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
