Dave Grusin: Inside Story

Dave Grusin

Dave Grusin’s 40-year career in the music business has led him down many paths, and all have been successful for this gifted musician, composer, arranger, recording executive, and cowboy. Now, at 63, Grusin has added another credit to his already packed résumé, a hip-but-respectful reworking of the Leonard Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim classic West Side Story, officially titled Dave Grusin Presents West Side Story, on his N2K label. And even he’s amazed at how high-tech this new venture is.

Blending music with hot video and audio technology, the CD is available both as an audio recording and as a DVD, the latter including interviews with artists, and details on how the production came together—presented in mind-blowing 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound.
