Nice and diverse interpretations
This album is about one piece and many different interpretations, from the classical in the bookending tracks 1 and 10 over piano, brass, and marimba (track 8). That interpretation is the one that got me hooked on this CD. There is also one swing version by Benny Goodman (track 5) which is unfortunately not available here, and which would complete the album. As a side note for adventurers in this genre, I should point out that there is an intriguing vocal version by Angélique Kidjo titled "Lonlon".
Is this honestly an album of JUST Ravel's Bolero.... As a musician, I can say that it is a beautiful piece, but slighty overrated....AN ENITRE ALBUM?!?!?! weird.
A whole album of my favorite song ever... what more can I ask for? But those of you who think of it as OVERRATED... : o it must not be your favorite song.
