Seeing "West Side Story" on the big screen on Sunday at the magnificent United Palace Cinema on 175th & Broadway, NYC. has rekindled my interest in the music. Can any of you recommend any Jazz versions of numbers from the musical ? Perhaps even whole records. Over the years I've seen the Stan Kenton LP many times, but never picked one up. any good ? Any and all pointers very much appreciated.

Many thanks Captain Vague - think I'm gonna kick it off at the top o' the dozens and go for both the Cal Tjader and the Oscar Peterson.

That Bill Charlap trio is a smokin' recording, albeit on CD,
Just adding my two-cents Cool
