LA Times Review: A Gershwin Fest from Michael Feinstein and Pasadena Pops

"The magic of the Gershwin songbook swept the Los Angeles County Arboretum on Saturday, when Michael Feinstein and the Pasadena Pops Orchestra, together with guest vocalists Catherine Russell and Tom Wopat, closed the 2013 season in glossy, old-school fashion....(Nelson) Riddle’s charts for Ella Fitzgerald, wherein the dusky-voiced (Catherine) Russell deftly demonstrated her own incisive range. Turning “Nice Work If You Can Get It" into a textbook study of straight-toned panache, delivering “The Man I Love" and "Love Walked In" with a passion that wouldn’t shame Shirley Bassey, Russell brought the songwriters’ intentions into sizzling focus."
