Fans of Fosse--the Broadway dance revue highlighting the varied output of choreographer-director Bob Fosse--will undoubtedly want to snatch up this cast recording of the music. Though it's missing a few tunes found in the live production, the disc still presents some of the best-loved numbers that made Fosse famous from musicals such as Dancin', Sweet Charity, and Chicago. Jane Lanier, Michael Paternostro, and Alex Sanchez do a fun take on The Pajama Game's "Steam Heat." Shannon Lewis's sultry "I Gotcha" (from 1972's Liza with a Z television special) is one of the disc's catchiest tunes. The Chicago tunes--"Nowadays," "The Hot Honey Rag," and "Razzle Dazzle"--are also obvious highlights filled with vitality. Unfortunately, synthesized music and unaffected vocals mar a few tracks; "Bye Bye Blackbird," for example, sounds empty and dated without the visual cues. Luckily, "Sing! Sing! Sing!" from Dancin' closes out the disc with a brassy and swinging jazz sound--which is exactly how Fosse would probably want to be remembered. --Jason Verlinde
Excellent recording, Excellent musicians, Excellent musical arrangements, and Excellent singers/performers.
I did not see this show on Broadway, but when listening to this CD I feel as if I'm seeing it. By the way, get the DVD too, it's well worth it.
This is as classy as it gets!!!
