Star-packed and vibrant, THE SONGS OF WEST SIDE STORY aims to introduce the trailblazing Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim show-tunes to a new generation of listeners. It does so by recruiting the cream of today's chart-topping crop of musicians to update the songs in thoroughly contemporary styles.
This grand experiment works, even though the genre-hopping concept may initially strike the listener as overreaching. Among the many highlights are Phil Collins' "Somewhere," Selena's "I Feel Pretty," and charismatic spins by Aretha Franklin and All-4-one. THE SONGS OF WEST SIDE STORY makes for an interesting concept that's truly musical, stylistically up-to-date, and a lot of fun.
