5.0 out of 5 stars Long live the Jazz... and Fosse!
This is a marvellous collector piece. Coming from a great movie, this could only be an espectacular Soundtrack. I've always felt attracted to the film for its visual stile (just like any other Fosse's movie, especially "Cabaret") and the sarcastic tone.

3.0 out of 5 stars the soundtrack to Bob Fosse's dance epic
ALL THAT JAZZ is Bob Fosse's ultimate tribute to his life's passion: dance. The soundtrack to the movie includes several great numbers, all orchestrated by wunderkind Ralph Burns.
George Benson belts out "On Broadway", Sandahl Bergman slinks her way through "Take Off with Us", the delightful Ann Reinking sings "There'll Be Some Changes...

5.0 out of 5 stars Long live the Jazz... and Fosse!, June 26 2000
This review is from: Motown Legends (Audio CD)
This is a marvellous collector piece. Coming from a great movie, this could only be an espectacular Soundtrack. I've always felt attracted to the film for its visual stile (just like any other Fosse's movie, especially "Cabaret") and the sarcastic tone. A courious note about this film is that a few years after Bob Fosse realeased this sort of oracular-autobiography, the author died just like the movie character inspired in him.
Some of the songs has a very 80's beat, which of course was en vogue when it was made. The album includes classic themes like "Concert in G" by Vivaldi, and also pop music classics like "On Broadway". The piece "Take off with us" is simply marvellous. But the best thing of this record os the ironization of the lyrics of themes like "Bye, bye love", "Some of this days", "Who's sorry now" and "After you're gone". This soundtrack is simply amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars the soundtrack to Bob Fosse's dance epic, Jan. 30 2004

This review is from: Motown Legends (Audio CD)
ALL THAT JAZZ is Bob Fosse's ultimate tribute to his life's passion: dance. The soundtrack to the movie includes several great numbers, all orchestrated by wunderkind Ralph Burns.
George Benson belts out "On Broadway", Sandahl Bergman slinks her way through "Take Off with Us", the delightful Ann Reinking sings "There'll Be Some Changes Made" and Peter Allen sings the wonderful "Everything Old is New Again".
ALL THAT JAZZ broke new boundaries in dance, the eroticism and drama created through dance, particularly the styles that Fosse himself spearheaded and created. ALL THAT JAZZ featured superb performances by Roy Schneider and Jessica Lange, though was really a showcase for seasoned Fosse dancers and interpreters like Ben Vereen and Ann Reinking as well as the statuesque Sandahl Bergman.
A fine album to add to your collection. [POLYGRAM 551269-2]

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazzy, funny, perfect, Feb. 22 2000

This review is from: Motown Legends (Audio CD)
This is one of the best soundtracks EVER. The music--in light of the film--is funny in the most ironic sense. The last song is true show stopper. The film was both one of the most serious musicals ever made and also one of the funniest statements about death ever out on celuloid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice mix of music, April 9 2000
This review is from: Motown Legends (Audio CD)
I first bought this record (yes record) in 1981. I have since replaced it with a CD. Like Robert from Florida, I am interested in knowing which Vivaldi Concerto in D is the one used from the soundtrack!

I love the Vivaldi Concerto in G. I would like to purchase it - however - Vivaldi wrote many concertos in G. Does anyone know which one this one is?

5.0 out of 5 stars Death has never sounded so good, March 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Motown Legends (Audio CD)
The backbone of one of Hollywood's best movies -- and maybe the most serious movie musical ever -- was this music. Dark and cynical and perfect.
