V.A. - Jazz And Broadway


The Jazz and the Broadway.    

Popular songs have always served jazz as improvisational material. Especially the great Broadway tunes up to the 1960s were a good source and inspired the jazz musicians of that time. In addition, around Broadway jazz clubs and theaters were door to door for many years, composers and musicians appreciated each other and had friends in crossing genre boundaries. This resulted in unique jazz versions of important and timeless Broadway compositions from West Side Story, My Fair Lady, Porgy And Bess, Gigi, Anything Goes, Pal Joey and Jumbo. The brilliant arrangements are full of the individual aesthetics and genius of legendary jazz musicians such as Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, André Previn, Shelly Manne, Billy Taylor, Dudley Moore, Sonny Red and Red Garland.
