We gave it a B+

Hearing the architect of 1960s ”teenage symphonies to God” cover the symphonically inclined George Gershwin is a kick, if not always a revelation. On Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin, easy-listening Brian shows up more than weirdo Wilson, and when it comes to doing ”?’S Wonderful” as a light bossa nova, ‘s just okay. But ”They Can’t Take That Away From Me” remade as a ”California Girls”-style shuffle is too novel to pass up. B+
