        This is interesting and quite challenging music and captures the essence of Bernstein's original score through a good piano accompaniment. The exciting cross rhythms of America and Mambo are well rendered and give the flute player something to think about.
        I would have liked to have the middle section of I Feel Pretty included; it is a bit short without it.
