Loads of fun

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fun little album consisting of ten versions of Ravel's greatest "hit" -- the fantastic "Bolero." This album covers the waterfront -- from synthesizer to Benny Goodman. My only complaint is that the quality of some of older recordings in particular is rather poor. In fact you need to crank up the volume on two or three cuts, otherwise you won't even realize the song has begun. It would be interesting to apply this concept to any number of the great classical and popular pieces that one can't seem to get enough of -- how about Cole Porter's "Night and Day" for starters?"

"This CD is exactly what I was looking for. Bolero over and over with different performers."

"I first heard this CD on Sirius radio, and had to have it. The various interpretations of Bolero are fascinating. My favorite is Benny Goodman: his version is only about 3 minutes long, but it's terrific. Great value, both as simply popular music to enjoy and also as an education in how style and arrangement impact a piece of music."
