Goodreads asked Richie Gerber:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Richie Gerber Back in early 2013 I realized that February 12, 2014 would be the 90th Anniversary of the first performance of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" at Aeolian Hall in NYC. I wanted to write a book to honor Gershwin and his trailblazing music as well as JAZZ in general.
