Re: Gershwin CD
By Peter Neilson

Does anyone know how we can be sure that the holes in a particular roll, or the grooves on a piano phonograph record for that matter, were produced by the performer whose Great Name appears on the label? Could it be that George used a stand-in who could play better than he could, perhaps Ferde Grofe?

I know that when someone asks -me- to play the piano, I always prefer to have someone else do it, usually J. Lawrence Cook, or some great, nameless soul at US Rolls, but once in a joyful while Doug Henderson of Artcraft.
