This a different take on the Bernstein original but that what Grusin is about. Great musicians great arrangements and well recorded. Different but brilliant. It swings like mad and is very emotive in places.

Fantastic album consisting of arrangements from Bernstein's classic West Side Story featuring the cream of today's studio and jazz musicians. Ably arranged and conducted by Dave Grusin, this is well worth a listen. Highlight for me is definitely Something's Coming, featuring Michael Brecker.

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!

Great music but the video lets down the whole plot. When Grusin had a choice of clips from the musical and video of great musicians playing and singing, it is hard to understand why such large segments are filled in with blurry shots of nothing and graphics of audio waves. Was he becoming senile? The video is an insult to great musicians!
