I purchased this CD as a means to obtaining a copy of the wonderful `Air on the G-string' arrangement, as used in the Hamlet cigar advert. However, despite one reviewer marvelling at the version on this album - which pretty much sold it to me, I was totally disappointed. This one is much more `jazzed-up' and bears little resemblance to the mellow version we all know.
Whilst not being a jazz advocate, I did endeavour to enjoy the rest of the album, which includes some talented playing and interesting variations on the original pieces, although in my opinion a few tracks are spoilt by over-drumming and too much cymbal work.
A jazz enthusiast may appreciate this album more than I, but if you are looking for the original track used in the Hamlet advert, avoid this.
