AllMusic Review by

This is a studio re-creation of the 1944 show about three sailors on leave for a day in New York City, featuring original cast members Nancy Walker, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green, plus John Reardon. Comden and Green provided lyrics to this delightful work, and the music is by Leonard Bernstein, who conducts here. In addition to such standards as "New York, New York" and "I Can Cook Too," this version includes a great deal of instrumental dance music.
