Superb performances by Jewel and Nathan Lane

"I've heard Nathan Lane's performance 50 times and still laugh at his superb portrayal of the lion. This guy is tops. Jewel's voice and modern slant to Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a must hear. You will not find a better source of entertainment. This soundtrack has it all. Hearing 'The Jitterbug' makes me wonder why this jazzy little tune was left out of the original motion picture."
To me, homage to the original..for a great cause

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Granted, there is no way any new production of "The Wizard of Oz" can compare to the 1939 film-not even "The Wiz" came close. But when these artists came together for a good cause, The Children's Defense Fund, all I could think of was what a wonderful homage to the original cast and Harold Arlen's music. Perhaps on CD one loses this feeling. But watching the concert, that is available on video, you can see that their hearts are in the right place.Nathan Lane celebrates Bert Lahr's memory in his performance as the Cowardly Lion. He is an absolute joy.On the video, there are interviews with some of the artists...and Jackson Browne puts it best. He was in awe of the audience, mostly baby boomers, with their children on their laps, clapping, with fists in the air, like the "Who" concerts in the 70's when Roger Daltrey appears on stage as the Tin Man, incorporating some of the "old moves" into the character. IMHO, this is a video and CD worth buying and sharing with a new generation."
