Here's a swinging, tone perfect, small jazz group live version of some of the gems from the Leonard Bernstein catalogue powered by Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine and beautifully arranged by pianist Danny Grissett - interesting touches include using harmonica (Bertl Mayer) as lead voice on 'I Feel Pretty'. Drummers check out Erskine's masterful touches on 'It's Love'. Great too to hear swinging guitarist Andreas Varady in this context - he makes 'Lonely Town' come alive. The whole album was recorded live at the Funkhaus in Vienna in October 2021.

Out on 19 January. 'Somewhere' is streaming ahead of the full album release
