This chapter presents Ira Gershwin's opinion about his brother, composer George Gershwin. It explains that George was a good deal like his music: vibrant, dynamic, and honest. Though he devoted most of his time to the piano and his music, George also found time to engage in so many other activities including painting, golf, art collection, photography, and dancing. George moved fast, lived fast, studied hard, and learned fast.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin, composer, musician, artist
