West Side Story is based on Romeo and Juliet, set against a contemporary background of warring gangs on New York's West Side. Unlike most musicals, this one deals with a real social problem in terms of tragic theater; yet the production is brilliantly realized in song and in dance with wit and tenderness as well as tense drama. The music by Leonard Bernstein is an integral part of the total conception, its unconventional song structures and harmonic progressions are not the kind which would seem to lend themselves readily to modern jazz treatment. Yet, possibly because of the challenge provided by the Bernstein material, Andre Previn, Shelly Manne and Red Mitchell have improvised on it brilliantly, transforming it into one of their most imaginative show-jazz albums.
