Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ted Mills
Recorded especially for the Woody Allen film, this soundtrack contains one side "Rhapsody in Blue" Zubin Mehta conducting the New York Philharmonic less than a year after assuming the post with another side a medley of George Gershwin's songs orchestrated and adapted by Tom Pierson. The film Manhattan was Allen's love letter to his favorite city in the world, and both sides certainly overflow with a grand romantic idealism. The medleys suffer from making some pretty disparate Gershwin songs sound same-y, but in context with Allen's black and white images, they work very well.

    One of the finest renditions of Gershwin

    As any Gershwin fan knows, there is no shortage of artists (vocalists and instrumentalists) who have done their own take on Gershwin over the decades, but ironically this movie soundtrack is by far my favorite rendition of many popular Gershwin tunes. It is truly a joy. Zubin Mehta's orchestration is simply beautiful.

    Great soundtrack; well played; great songs.

    This soundtrack, to the Woody Allen movie, features some great songs, including, the long version of Rhapsody In Blue. Well played, well conducted by Zubin Mehta, and a collection of songs; which, some could have been longer (its only fault, but then, it would have had to be a 2 disc set, but I could have lived with that). One of the songs, called "Mine", sounds suspiciously like the closing theme of "Everybody Loves Raymond", but of course, this would have been years before this show was even thought of, so I don't know. Anyway, great soundtrack, highly recommended.
