4.0 out of 5 stars THE perfect example of the minor broadway musical January 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
a generation ago -- or two -- the broadway musical season would usually produce one blockbuster, several flops, and 2 or 3 "nice shows" that would play to theatre parties and tourists and show queens, and then after six months to a year, close at a modest profit or a modest loss.
BAJOUR is a classic of this type of show. it is replete with almost hilarious comedy songs, and almost lovely ballads. its ambitions were modest, but it accomplished them 100%. and there are some great performances here by broadway legend chita rivera, and the sadly ignored and underrated nancy dussault.
if you expect every show to be MY FAIR LADY, this album is not for you. but if you want to spend a thoroughly enjoyable hour listening to what the broadway musical once was, you cannot do better than BAJOUR!

3.0 out of 5 stars Catchy tunes with two star turns. November 22, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Chita Rivera and Nancy Dussault are the stars of this show. The score isn't wonderful, but there are plenty of tunes to keep you humming. Two songs, "Mean" and "I Can," demonstrate why Ms Rivera has been a plus for any musical production

5.0 out of 5 stars A score to cherish, and perfectly captured ! February 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to see this show when I was 21, and all my life I have enjoyed soaking up the succulent score. Even today's hits don't have songs this good any more. If Styne & Hart could have collaborated on a score, it would turn out something like this. And to think one man wrote it ! Chita's "Love Line" still gives me chills & tears. Nancy's tribe song is adorable. "Mean" refuses to let go of you. "Honest Man" makes you want to get up and perform it with someone good ! These lyrics are brilliantly clever fun, and the melodies actually have MELODY ! Remember melody ? Just listen to that thrilling overture. Remember Overtures ??? Hey, Broadway originals ! How about getting Chita & Nancy to re-create "Yes I Can" ? GET THIS CD !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars bright and bouncy Broadway flop May 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Here's a great treasure for the serious musical theatre collectors. With it's zesty story of a troupe of gypsies in New York, BAJOUR ran for a none-too-shabby 232 performances on Broadway; a perfect example of the tidy, one-season wonder. It's sparkling cast includes Chita Rivera as fiery gypsy maiden Anyanka; and Nancy Dussault as Emily Kirsten, the anthropology student fascinated by the culture clash in progress.

Originally, BAJOUR was to have been a reunion for the producers and creative team behind "Bye Bye Birdie", but for whatever reason that never quite panned out. Instead, the score of BAJOUR was fashioned by Walter Marks with a book by Ernest Kinoy (loosely based on stories which originally appeared in the New Yorker magazine, written by Joseph Mitchell). Chita Rivera, who had recently returned from her duties in the London company of "Bye Bye Birdie", was a shoo-in for the role of Anyanka and delivers handsomely. Nancy Dussault had been the final Maria in the original run of "The Sound of Music", and her pert, vivacious stage personality was likewise a perfect fit for Emily.

Tuneful and bouncy, the score of BAJOUR glistens with several wonderful pieces that will prove irresistible for the serious Broadway enthusiasts. "Love-Line", "Mean!", and "I'll Try" (the latter a comedic duet for Anyanka and Emily) are ideal for the livewire talents of Chita Rivera. Ms Dussault has some excellent pieces like "Living Simply", which climaxes into a swirling three-part melody with Robert Burr and the male ensemble; the manic "Where is the Tribe for Me?" has a zany, Carol Burnett-feel to it (she was originally considered for the role of Emily); and "Love is a Chance", a gangbusters 11 o'clock gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars HURRICANE RITA....SORRY I MEAN CHITA December 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Bajour had most of all the ingredients for a successful show. Talented cast, colorful costumes, witty scenery, tuneful and lively songs, torrid choreography and the fantastic and uncannily thrilling dancing of Chita Rivera who single-handedly nearly caused a fire alarm from the sparks shooting from her heels. The problem which could not be solved was the book which was too convaluted and had a premise stretched beyond the breaking point. Nancy Dussault as Emily is a student who in order to obtain a degree in anthropology must write a thesis on the primitive customs of a tribe. She settles on a "tribe' of Gypsies in NYC and that was the stretch that stopped the show from becoming a hit and a shame it is to anyone who hears the delightful score. The cd is now out of print but worthwhile for theatre buffs if it becomes available again but unfortunatly the fiery dancing of Ms Rivera (on the numbers 'The Haggle' 'Mean' 'Bajour' and 'The Sew-up' the last not on the cd because it is a dance number only)can't be appreciated.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very nice score. January 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The CD of Bajour is the perfect example of a "nice" Broadway show: Plesant score with a few nice songs such as "Words, Words, Words" and "Where is the Tribe for Me", but nothing groundbreaking or remarkable about it. Great performance by Chita Rivera, Nancy Dussault and, Herschel Bernardi also help. A good CD for Broadway fans.
