George Gershwin by Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys

I heard about this cover project on NPR a few weeks ago and it completely fascinated me.
The album is called Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin.

Not all of the songs are to my liking, but some are quite good.

"S Wonderful" has a cool bossa nova sound, "Rhapsody in Blue" definitely has that harmonizing Beach Boys sound, and "I Got Rhythm" has the Beach Boys surfer sound.

"I've Got a Crush on You" sounds like a perfectly authentic Beach Boys song.
