Brothers Gershwin

July 20, 1986

I was dismayed to see that Donna Perlmutter omitted any mention of Ira Gershwin in her glowing review of Sarah Vaughan's recent performances at Hollywood Bowl ("Vaughan's Rhapsody in Gershwin," July 14).

I'm sure she'd be the first to agree that Vaughan would not have delivered with "astonishing wit, imagination and musicality" if she had just hummed George Gershwin's music and not sung Ira Gershwin's musical lyrics.

How about giving credit where credit is overdue!
