Great Jazz-Classical Music

If you are amused or enraptured by Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, and you're not a *gasp* literalist, then you should know this music! If you look it up on Amazon, it was re-issued on CD in 1990 and credited to the "101 Strings."

But as you can see from this, the original cover, the performers are the Video All-Stars, a likely pseudonym for somebody or other. The performing group has lot of woodwinds and brass, players probably NOT featured in the "101 Strings" ensemble.


The subtitle for Scheherajazz is "...for Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Band." It's a wonderful take on the piece!
And as for the girl on the cover...va-va-VOOM!

Hey, I have been trying to get this album. Do you think you could upload it to divshare or somewhere like that and e-mail me a link?
