This chapter presents the text of the Abbe Niles' review of the performance of George Gershwin and Marguerite d'Alvarez's in their jazz concert in New York and the repeat performance in Boston, Massachusetts, which was published in the December 1926 issue of New Republic. Niles suggested that the only remarkable result of the program was the premiere of Gershwin's five preludes for piano, through six were previously promised and advertised. This account of Gershwin's New York recital and Boston repeat performance posed the continuing mystery about which of Gershwin's piano preludes were published and which were discarded.
