    Porgy. [DuBose Heyward] -- This novel is the story of Porgy, a crippled street-beggar in the black tenement. Unwashed and unwanted, he lives just on the edge of subsistence and trusts his fate to the gods and chance. Schillinger's influence can be seen in many of Gershwin's pieces, particularly in Porgy and Bess, an opera written for black singers using African American musical styles. Rhapsody in Blue, for piano and jazz orchestra, is another ground-breaking piece, incorporating jazz and blues sources and idioms in the classical concerto style.
