"Although the Medley from "Tommy" may seem a bit dated and commercialized (as some would put it), it is still a very well put together arrangement. I really enjoyed the trumpet solo (Danny Hayes). "Pieces Of Dreams" is another favorite of mine. Even though void of any solo work, still a very relaxing and introspective peace with marvelous voicings. The condensed "West Side Story" Medley is not in the class of the original. Solo work is on the "lazy" side. "Ease On Down The Road" sounds too commercial. And one of the sore points many have made of Rich's band taking on show pieces that's purpose was only to draw a newer (or broader)listening crowd for the band. Too contrived for my taste."
