After matching today’s performers to classic tunesmiths Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Red Hot folks turn their talents to the songbook of George and Ira Gershwin. The mood is particularly cool and jazzy, with Duncan Sheik’s slinky “Embraceable You,” Sinead O’Connor’s hushed “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and David Bowie and Angelo Badalamenti’s illustriously symphonic “A Foggy Day (in London Town)” shinning particularly bright among highlights both reverent and revisionist.
