5.0 out of 5 stars What's All that Jazz about ?, 12 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Chicago: London Cast (Audio CD)
Almost as good as being at the real thing, the London cast recording of Chicago does the production justice and more. Never before have I come across a soundtrack that portrays the show so true to life as this. From the sassy Overture which slickly leads into "All That Jazz" to the joyous Entr'Acte where if you turned your volume up to just a little than over acceptable you could almost be swinging with the band! A fantastic cast led by Ute Lemper and Ruthie Henshall as the murderous misfits of Chicago in the 1920's singing their way through brilliant numbers such as "My Own Best Friend" and "Nowadays". If you have an inkling for ragtime jazz this is a must. The lyrics and music by Kander and Ebb (also responsible for "Cabaret") manage to infuse sadness laughter and irony in all the numbers and this revival of the show and subsequent soundtrack has to be one of the best things to hit the West End in a long time. Thoroughly recommended for all musical lovers, I don't think anybody could say there isn't a song they like on there. You won't be dissapointed.
