Cheryl Bentyne re-imagines the broadway songs of Stephen Sondheim. Her sparkling vocals bring appropriate theatrical emotion to each song, making the comedy and tragedy her own. The music is based around piano, drums and bass. The 6 arrangers featured on this album bring creative experimental approaches to each song, bringing varied timing that makes them so jazzy they no longer sound like musical songs. The sound switches between being sparse and multi-layered, and sometimes has hints of bosa nova, acapella, and baroque. Playful and full of energy.

I love the music of Stephen Sondheim. What a disappointment. Cheryl Bentyne may have gained her experience with audiences and jazz as a member for 38 years with Manhattan Transfer, but her real finesse come shining through as an interpreter of songs in this impressive album of the songs of Stephen Sondheim. There is a piece in the PR for this recording that sums it well – ‘Music from Broadway shows has been a staple of the jazz repertoire since the 1920s. Even as jazz has evolved over the years, harmonically rich and lyrically sophisticated show tunes have provided an abundant supply of material for jazz singers of all stripes.
CHERYL BENTYNE - REARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS The magnificent Manhattan Transfer vocalist Cheryl Bentyne takes on the daunting task of reinterpreting the works of Stephen Sondhei. nd she triumphs. Re-Arrangements of Shadows’ is a stunning album, and certainly the best solo album of Cheryl Bentyne’s career. Bentyne’s CD may be the best jazz treatment these songs have ever received, simply because she is willing to treat them as songs, not as integral parts of Broadway shows .

It is far from the first compilation of Sondheim's work, or even the first box set, but it follows a pattern in such compilations and in box sets in general, in that the selection seems aimed at two different classes of potential purchasers, those general fans looking for a single omnibus collection of the best or most popular of an artist's. efforts, and the aficionados primarily interested in rarities

On reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS, vocalist Cheryl Bentyne re-imagines songs by the iconic Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim. She will be accompanied by Yaron Gershovsky on piano, Matt Aronoff on bass, Clint de Ganon on drums and Aaron Weinstein on violin. Music from Broadway shows has been a staple of the jazz repertoire since the 1920s. Although Sondheim is generally considered the greatest contemporary Broadway composer, his songs are mostly written as plot points within the context of a show. That makes them very difficult to sing in other settings, and consequently, many jazz singers have not embraced a large part of his oeuvre.
