Phantom Regiment’s third-placing 2005 show took its inspiration from two Gershwin pieces, one which almost was never written — Rhapsody in Blue.
When Gershwin was first approached by a bandleader for commissioning a piece for an experimental jazz-classical concert with a two-month deadline, he declined the short notice. However, the bandleader then reported to the New York Tribune that “Gershwin [was] at work on a jazz concerto,” ultimately driving the composer (with five weeks left) to write what would become one the most popular and lasting pieces of US concert works.
