Never Before on VINYL!!! 180g Double Vinyl with Deluxe Packaging!

From the Original Master of Universal Music! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Herbie Hancock's 42nd album contains songs by George and Ira Gershwin. Prominent musicians featured include Joni Mitchell, Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Wayne Shorter, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and more.

"More than just another in the seemingly endless series of songbooks cranked out by the Verve marketing machine, Gershwin's World could just as easily have been called Hancock's World. His stamp is that strong on these familiar Gershwin vehicles...The breadth and depth of Hancock's artistry as expressed throughout this magnificent collection is absolutely stunning. With Gershwin's World, a celebration of composer's centennial, he has crafted one for the ages."

"Gershwin's World is a tour de force for Herbie Hancock, transcending genre and label, and ranking among the finest recordings of his lengthy career...Yet with all the fine performances by his guests, Gershwin's World remains Hancock's show, and he plays magnificently throughout. From beautiful to funky, percussive to melodic, improvisational to tightly arranged, Hancock and cohorts take a wondrous journey through the music and world of Gershwin." -Jim Newsom,

Recorded on 180g heavy-weight vinyl to ensure quality sound, packaged in gatefold cover, and covered by premium protective vinyl outer sleeve.

The “Play 33 1/3 LP Series” features masterpiece albums released in the '90s converted for the first time world-wide to analog Long Playing record. The album cover and package created after months of graphic work and processes by hand enhanced its excellence and to ensure the record’s superb sound quality, the German MMP, who undertook the record production of EMI Germany and Universal, utilized a heavy weight 180g vinyl LP to contain the sound. Khiov who was in charge of the planning and production of many LP miniature series took charge of the album cover production spending 6 months to create a masterpiece.

This project was highly scrutinized passing rigid testing at the factory in Germany. Even the performers themselves had not been able to put their hands on the LP version of their own albums as their home country had not produced them. The LPs produced by this project certainly have become must-have items by LP lovers all around the world.

In the age where faster and more convenient is thought to be better, the increase in demand for the retro vinyl LP worldwide is clearly attributed to the satisfaction from the sound offered by analog products impossible to be replicated by CD and digital products and the delight of touching, feeling, and possessing this masterpiece-like large artwork. Furthermore, LP records have both rarity and history that increase their value over time and serve as an attractive factor for collectors.
