Sunday Night Sondheim – "Talent" from "Bounce"

Although Bounce has (somewhat deservedly) received a bad rap, there are a number of exemplary song from the show, my favorite one being “Talent”, sung on this YouTube video by the charismatic Gavin Creel, which is set in a train car, making its way to Boca Raton, FL. I really love the superb orchestrations that unobtrusively mimic the sound of the train rolling down the tracks.
