Review by Alex Henderson, Allmusic.com:

From Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin to Mahler and Bartok, European classical music has been a source of inspiration to numerous jazz musicians. The 19th Century compositions of the Strauss family are the subject of All That Strauss, which documents a New Year's 2000 concert by the Vienna Art Orchestra--one of Europe's most adventurous big bands. It is quite appropriate that this Strauss tribute concert was performed in Vienna and that the orchestra has Vienna in its name; for many classical greats have lived in Austria's largest city, including Johann and Eduard Strauss. While the Vienna Art Orchestra's love of the Strauss legacy is obvious, the band doesn't treat its compositions like museum pieces. Instead, time-honored compositions like "Donauwalzer," "Albion Polka," "Ein Morgen, ein Mittag, ein Abend in Wien" and "Lagunen Walzer" are given serious jazz makeovers, and arranger Mathias R?egg sees to it that the orchestra takes a lot of chances with the material. To some classical purists, the very thought of approaching these pieces as jazz is an act of musical heresy. But in fact, the Vienna Art Orchestra honors the memory of Johann and Eduard Strauss by doing something fresh and creative with their music. All That Strauss won't appeal to classical purists or classical snobs, but from a jazz perspective, it's a gem.
