    I pretty much can't stand orchestra's with jazz soloists, i'm really, really skeptical. I've never heard anyone do it successfully. There's so much jazz coming out that's "adult contemporary" music, what's with all this??? I don't get it, sounds like film music gone wrong. bah hum bug!

    anything is cool with me.

    i haven;t listened extensively, but it's decent.

    jazznan: I get your point, but remember, music have sounded like this long before it made its way into film. I pretty much liked the music, even if Im also sceptical to orchestra/jazz soloist format. Didnt Bill Evans record with orchestra..?

    this is just personal taste and opinion, but although I love Bill Evan's and Kurt's playing, with an orchestra I think it sounds ridiculous. It's the worst of both things, especially recorded. Live, I might be able to tolerate it, simply because of the joy of watching a bunch of people hopefully having a good time....oh well, glad you guys like it.
