Long live the Jazz... and Fosse!
on June 26, 2000
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.
