The great musical theatre composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim turns 90 today and so no better excuse and a perfect opportunity to listen again to Color and Light: Jazz Sketches on Sondheim, a jazz themed all-star celebration of his work released in 1995. From the album on 'They Ask Me Why I Believe In You' Sondheim plays a fine piano duet with the greatest living jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, who himself will turn 80 in three weeks' time.
