From the arranger:

George Gershwin’s Liza (1929) is set in the style of the Quintette of the Hot Club of France with the initial pizzicato solo in the style of Django Reinhardt’s guitar and the following arco solo inspired by the approach of violinist Stephane Grappelli. The virtuosity of the later ensemble choruses reflects the crowd-pleasing solo piano version of the song by Art Tatum.
