Original Cast Bounce (Original Cast Recording)

Amazon.co.uk

Bounce is a pretty accurate title for this Sondheim show, which receives a cast album after having been seemingly everywhere but Broadway. In a way this is fitting for a musical that's been on Sondheim's mind since 1952, when he first read about the adventures of the two Mizner brothers in The New Yorker. Based on this autumn 2003 Kennedy Centre production, figuring out why Bounce doesn't quite click is tricky. Is it the heard-it-before quality of the material? The title track is disappointingly by-the-numbers Sondheim, for instance. Or is it the uneven cast? Howard McGillin lacks the outsize personality needed to infuse life into scheming Wilson Mizner (a part played by Nathan Lane in a 1999 Off-Broadway "workshop" of the show, then titled Wise Guys). But then Michelle Pawk does wonderfully in the sultry ballad "What's Your Rush?" before eclipsing McGillin in their duet, "The Best Thing That Ever Has Happened". Bounce may not work as a show, but a few of its songs are bound to show up in a cabaret near you sooner rather than later. --Elisabeth Vincentelli, Amazon.com

There is no doubt of Stephen Sondheim's greatness. He is a towering figure, who has permanently influenced English-speaking musical theatre. Born in 1930, with major achievements there for all to see, it must be very difficult for him to move on to pastures new. BOUNCE is in a number of ways a regressive work. It is a collaboration with Hal Prince, with whom there were many triumphs in the 1970s, and with John Weidman, who provided him with two intelligent books (PACIFIC OVERTURES and ASSASSINS) in the past. More to the point, it mines the same seams as those two collaborations with Weidman, as well as FOLLIES and MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG from the partnership with Prince. Revealingly, BOUNCE has been a project that Sondheim apparently first thought about nearly half a century ago. Perhaps unsurprisingly, although the songs are new, the feeling is a little weary. It is of course impossible to comprehensively assess a work of music-theatre on the basis of a cast album. And it is certainly true, as Frank Rich suggests in his accompanying sleeve-notes, that posterity has been kinder to Sondheim's works than contemporary reviews have ever been. But BOUNCE, while often delighting, no longer surprises. The skill is as great as ever, and is at the command of that unique sensibility. But this great artist's work once again needs to renew itself in his material. Sondheim knows about artistic renewal: when he first collaborated with James Lapine, he arose like a phoenix from the ashes of the collapse of MERRILY. In BOUNCE he seems to be trying to rekindle something that has burnt itself out.

Well I liked it. I'm still quite new to Mr Sondheim's material and being determined to work my way through all his musicals I snapped at the chance to own this. I was pleasantly surprised at the lightness of some of the tracks, the title track is a joy and as with all Sondheim's work it's full of little phrases or tunes that are repeated to great effect, pulling on your heartstrings in the only way Mr S. can. All i'll say is 'Look at it'
Personally I prefer this to some of his other more 'liked' works, it's far easier on the ear than 'Passion' a score which I find boring and tuneless.
If you are a Sondheim fan and this has passed you by, give yourself a pinch and purchase it. Don't expect great things and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Not as well known as Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, or Sweeny Todd, but, if you're a Sondheim fan well worth picking up. An interesting story line, told in reverse timeline, good characterisation, emotional representation, ironic twists, and the usual gifted wordplay. This production was a Broadway flop, and was later recrafted with the title "Road Show"Road Show. This version, "Bounce", is a convincing performance by the cast, the orchestration is very good (orchestrations on different recording of the same show can often vary considerably in scale and style), and the recording is just right.

Not the best that Sondheim has written, but even when Sondheim is not at his best, he produces music which stays with you. Best considered as 'work in progress', mostly recycled into his longer musical on the same topic which was produced briefly in late 2008. But it's Sondheim. We'll hear individual items from 'Bounce' for a long time, even if he never does re-work it into a full and succesful stage format.
