Gershwin Plays Gershwin: The Piano Rolls is an album of piano rolls recorded by George Gershwin. It was released by Nonesuch Records in 1993.

Reception[edit]

Allmusic awarded the album with 4.5 stars and its review by Scott Yanow states: "George Gershwin made 130 piano rolls between 1916-1927. Certainly such tunes as "Novelette in Fourths," "So Am I," and "Idle Dreams" are long forgotten but worth reviving."[2]
