Before Cy Coleman was a noted composer of such shows as Little Me, Sweet Charity, Barnum and On the Twentieth Century, he was the favorite of the New York jazz scene. Now, for the first time, Cy and his fellow musicians play the scores of Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg’s hit show Jamaica in addition to songs from the Rodgers and Hammerstein hits Flower Drum Song and South Pacific. The works from the latter production have been taken from rare transcription recordings, and are making their first debuts since being recorded in the early 1950s. It’s 50s jazz at its finest!
