Director Martin Scorsese' s ambitious and lengthy movie Reggae Night - Jimmy Cliff - We All Are One: The Best Of New York, New York is a bittersweet love story set in the years after World War II, told against the background of the popular music business. Each of the protagonists represents one side of that dichotomy, which may alert a music fan that their romance is ultimately doomed.
On this soundtrack album originally released as a two-LP setthe dominant voices are Minnelli 's, naturally, and the saxophone of Georgie Auldmimed by De Niro onscreen.
Musical supervisor Ralph Burns tackles the job of re-creating the big band and traditional pop styles, as Minnelli initially tries to get along musically with her husband, even undertaking a credible jazz vocal, complete with scatting, on "Just You, Just Me.
It appears on the album, although it was cut from the initial release of the film which still managed to cross the two-and-a-half-hour mark.
