This collection of overtures from the greatest Broadway shows gives the listener a rare and opportunity to hear and compare major works from the greatest composers of the Musical Theatre in one album.

From the pens of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jule Styne, Rodgers and Hammerstien, Stephen Sondheim, Frank Loesser, Leonard Bernstein, Cole Porter and more have come the works we present here on this digital recording, works that include 8 Tony award winning musicals and almost every other accolade conceivable

Each overture has been meticulously recorded in Full Digital Stereo at world famous studios, mainly Abbey Road Studios in London. Using full orchestrations and orchestras (where called for) such as The National Symphony Orchestra and The Philharmonia plus conductors of truly international repute we have ensured that each piece is as true to the original as possible whilst offering the unique JAY Records "performance" sound that comes with the experience of producing close to 200 musical works.
