Dear Dorothy: The Oz Sessions based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This album takes a fresh look at one of the most interesting and original pieces of American music, the soundtrack to the Wizard of Oz. Music in an of itself rarely makes a movie a classic, but in this case, try to imagine the Wizard of Oz without its music. The Chad Lawson trio takes this music and places a contemporary jazz spin on it, reviving the music for a new generation. It is at times both invigorating and mellow, as the Trio uses the musical pieces we all know and love as the framework for a truly original exposition. This music is perfect for a dinner party, study music, or ''alone'' time with the one you love. It is wonderful interpretation of an American classic in the only truly American music form; Jazz. Expect great things from these musicians in the future.
I have to admit, I read a posting on a message board about this CD. At first I thought ''Ok, this should be interesting'' being that I'm more of a Wizard of Oz fan than I am to say a 'Jazz listener'. But I honestly have to say that I LOVE this album! They keep to the melodies and do so many songs from the Wizard of Oz, it's just great. Over the Rainbow is my favorite. You know it's the songs from the Wizard but they really put their own spin to it. Bravo. Highly recommended.
