It's astonishing that 40 years had to go by before the music from The Fantasticks became the basis for a jazz recording - one would think that, between the hits generated over the four decades and the extended original run of the New York production, someone would have done one. Producer Bruce Kimmel and the score's co-author, Harvey Schmidt, however, did get the idea to pianist Terry Trotter in the year 2000, and the result is this elegant exploration of the piece

The Trotter Trio is simply grand. This is not jazz that disguises Jones and Schmidt's score--it is jazz that enhances. Every number is a winner, just as every number in the original show is. There are even two versions of that more-than-famous "Soon It's Gonna Rain:" the first featuring the show's composer, Harvey Schmidt, on piano (who, by the way, is also the artist who drew the above mentioned art work) and the second with one of the greatest jazz/pop singers around: Maureen McGovern. This their fifth album for Varese Sarabande - "The Fantasticks In Jazz", is truly an astonishing event that this is the first time there has been a jazz album devoted to this score. Back in the early '60s there were a plethora of both jazz and instrumental cover versions of popular shows.
