5.0 out of 5 stars Great playing, 28 Oct. 2010
I have just recently purchased this album and I am very pleased with it. The first track 'Everything happens to me' is such a lovely arrangement for strings and piano with great playing by Gilad over the top, what a lovely song. the other tracks are also very good indeed. Buy it you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mehldau travels further, 28 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Highway Rider (Audio CD)
A stunning new album from Brad Mehldau. A step away from his solo albums and 'art of the trio', this double CD takes his compositional tastes a step further. At times, Jazz, Coplandesque, Ivesian, Hip hop, Mehldau has his regular trio plus a chamber orchestra and the great playing of Joshua Redman on board. A testament to this work is the fact that despite it's size, Mehldau is able to take this on tour, catch it live if you can, if not, buy the CD...what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sondheim's best?, 16 Aug. 2006
In my opinion this score rates amongst Sondheim's greatest achievements and this double CD represents the most complete recording of the score. An excellent recording of the current new london production starring Daniel Evans as artist George Seurat and Jenna Russell as his mistress Dot, takes its place proudly along side the original broadway cast recording with Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters.

This recording provides better value for money being a double cd containing more music than previously released. The two leads are excellent and have an equally excellent supporting cast. The original orchestrations by Starobin are replaced by new orchestrations by Jason Carr, a five piece chamber orchestration making the piece more intimate. I was dubious about buying this CD as I am so fond of the broadway cast recording, but after seeing the show I bought it immediately and was not disappointed!
