CHICAGO won the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack For A Motion Picture, Television Or Media. "I Move On" was nominated for Best Song Written For A Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media.This is a multi-channel Super Audio CDplayable only on Super Audio CD players.CHICAGO has a long and varied history; it began life in the '20s as a play about a showgirl named Roxie Hart, the character whose name was used as the title for a '40s movie inspired by the show. In the '70s, Broadway composers Kander and Ebb (CABARET, NEW YORK, NEW YORK) wrote the songs for a musical version focusing on the '20s-jazz angle and capitalizing on the murder-and-sex theme, and Bob Fosse fleshed the whole thing out to great success. The late-'90s Broadway revival of the show was even more successful and gave rise to a film version featuring Richard Gere, Renee Zellweger, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, movie stars not known for singing.The film turned out to be a huge hit, and the actors handle their vocal chores admirably, as borne out on this soundtrack disc. Zeta-Jones and Zellweger handle their respective roles of vamp and showgirl well.Music and lyrics written by John Kander and Fred Ebb.Original score composed by Danny Elfman.Includesa bonus DVD disc.Includes liner notes by Kander & Ebb.Personnel: Damon Sharpe, Greg Laswon (vocals, background vocals); Dana Calitri, Curtis King, Singleton Palmer Band, Darren Lee, Joe Pizzi, Ekaterina Chtchelkanova, Nick Richards, Charles King, Eric Troyer, Harrison Beal, Billy Hartung, Melanie Gage, Tata Nicole, Timothy Shew, Edgar Godineaux, Fonzi Thornton, Shaun Amyot, Susan Misner, Deidre Goodwin, Jeff Siebert, Michael Johnston , Rick Negron, Jocelyn Dowling, Roxane Barlow, Robert Montano,
