Product Description

Jason Robert Brown one of musical theatre's brightest young composers made his first New York splash in 1995 with Songs for a New World at the WPA Theatre. It's a revue of 16 of his cabaret and theater songs directed by Daisy Prince (Hal's daughter) and realized by a crack cast of Andrea Burns Jessica Molaskey Brooks Ashmanskas and Ty Taylor (who sang the role on this recording only because cast member Billy Porter had a contractual conflict) with Brown himself leading a small combo from the piano. Soaring melodies and irresistible rhythms mark a wide range of songs that encompass jazz (&quotJust One Step&quot) gospel (&quotThe River Won't Flow&quot) funk (&quotSteam Train&quot) and Kurt Weill (&quotSurabaya Santa&quot sort of Mrs. Claus's lament as it would be sung by Lotte Lenya). Most memorable are two songs of lost love: the Ashmanskas-Burns duet &quotI'd Give It All for You&quot which perfectly captures romantic yearning and Molaskey's wry yet poignant &quotStars and the Moon&quot which has become something of a jazzy standard recorded by such luminaries as Audra McDonald and Betty Buckley.

Format: Audio CD
This album is one of the finest musicals i have ever had the pleasure to listen to. Although the accompaniment is not a 'full' as most musicals (i.e. doesn't use a full orchestra) its instrumentation is well suited the the tone of the music. I was impressed with the versitality of the writing and the performers on the album are extremely talented, and are able to create different characters with ease for each song.
Although, i have not yet been fortunate to see Songs for a New World on stage as yet, I shall look out for tour dates in the UK. I am a huge fan of Jason Robert Brown, and i intend on listening to more of his work in the future.
All in all, I would say this musical is a huge success, and I would recommend everyone listens to the sounds samples, and you'll be just as amazed as I was.

This is a collection of songs rather than a story musical. I saw it performed by University students, and loved it so much I saw it again in the same week, and then bought the cd. Highly recommended.

Love this show - bought the soundtrack because I was playing for the show. I like Amazon's MP3 download service - much better than Apple etc. The only issue is that you cannot download FLAC or OGG lossless files. I'm an audio engineer and selling compressed audio files annoys me a bit...but it is cheap.

Well-performed - it does no more, nor less, than one might hope for. Jason entertains and holds the attention with his attractive, stylistic (but not overly demanding) shapes and structures.
