At the height of his popularity, pianist Oscar Levant was the highest-paid concert artist in America. He outdrew Horowitz and Rubinstein, with whom he shared the distinction of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He performed under conductors including Toscanini, Beecham, Mitropoulos, Reiner and Ormandy, and was the definitive interpreter of his friend George Gershwin.That classic interpretation and all his other recordings for the label, spanning the years 1942 to 1958, have now been collected in this set: painstakingly restored and remastered from the original analogue discs and tapes, the vast majority of them are appearing for the first time ever on CD. The 124-page book contains a biographical essay by George Gershwin and Oscar Levant scholar Michael Feinstein, a wealth of photos and facsimiles including a gallery of Alex Steinweiss album covers, as well as a complete recording session and release discography. Analogue Disc and Tape Transfers, Mixing and Mastering by Andreas K. Meyer and Rebekah Wineman at Swan Studios, New York City, using 24 bit / 192 kHz technology Contains previously released material. Tracks CD 2  and 3  previously unreleased.
