Most helpful critical review

One cannot ever doubt Mr Grusin & company for their musicianship, if somewhat deviant from what one normally remembers of the Bernstein basic West Side Story scores. Jazzy arrangements they certainly are!However I find some stray quite far, even though they exhibit excellent musicianship.I do NOT care for the vocal arrangements at all!Technically the encoded DtS mulitchannel DVD-A recording ( played through DtS compatible playback equipment) is an extremely live atmospheric jazz experience! Worth purchasing even if only as a good demo example of DtS recording techniques!
