Adolph Deutsch/Andre PrevinApartment/Fortune Cookie ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. New Copy ... $19.99
A couple of great soundtracks for the films of Billy Wilder – 1960's The Apartment, composed by Adolph Deutch, and Andre Previn's work for The Fortune Cookie – back-to-back on a single CD! Adolph Deutch's compositions from The Apartment roll from an easygoing jazzy vibe to sweeping brassy bits, and titles include "Lonely Room", "Where Are You, Fran", Hong Kong Blues", "Little Brown Jug" and more. Fortune Cookie is a great Andre Previn soundtrack for a later Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy numbers, featuring Previn's piano in the lead – and orchestral dramatic numbers directed with a pretty serious feel. Titles include "The Bad Guys", "The Nice Guys", "Second Chance", "Waltz Of The Fortune Cookies", and "The Detectives". CD also includes Previn's main title theme for "Irma La Douce". CD
(Limited edition of 1000 copies.)

A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy numbers (side one), featuring Previn's piano in the lead – and orchestral dramatic numbers (side two), directed with a pretty serious feel.

Andre PrevinInside Daisy Clover ... LP
Warner, 1965. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A very strange soundtrack from Andre Previn! The film is an obscure Natalie Wood vehicle – about an actress in Hollywood of the 30s – and it appears that Wood is the vocalist on the album's few numbers with lyrics, written by Andre with the help of Dory Previn, making the set one of their earliest collaborations! The vocal numbers are more 60s period sounding than 30s – and the instrumental ones are darker orchestral themes, with quite an edge to them. Titles include "Breakdown", "Swan's Way", "The Career Begins", "Sailboat", "The Convalarium", "The Circus Is A Wacky World", and two versions of "You're Gonna Hear From Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good- ... $2.99
Surprisingly nice stuff – especially considering that the album was one in a string of Previn piano sessions for Contemporary – all based around Broadway themes as part of the success of his My Fair Lady date with Shelly Manne! This set still features Manne on drums – and Red Mitchell on bass – but it's also got a thoughtful feel that takes it way past any cookie cutter expectations you might have – really recapturing the genius of the Lady record, in the way the trio works with triangulated action to come up with unusual rhythms and melodies for the tunes. Titles include "What Is A Man", "It's A Great Big Town", "Do It The Hard Way", "That Terrific Rainbow", and "Take Him". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre Previn/Jackie CainTwo For The See Saw ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Sealed ... $4.99
A gently jazzy score by Andre Previn – written for this Robert Wise film that starred an aging Robert Mitchum and a young Shirley MacLaine! The feel here is often sad, and a bit dreamy – scored with that "serious" early 60s style that showed up in New York TV dramas a fair bit, but also played with some nice jazzy solo touches – including alto by Ronald Lang, trombone by Dick Nash, and trumpet by Uon Rasey. A few tunes are a bit more upbeat, and Jackie Cain sings the lyrics to the title song "Song From Two For The Seesaw". Other tracks include "Two For The Twist", "Empty Bed", "He Saw She Saw", "I'm Sick", "Salty Sophie", and "Everybody's Got A Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

New Andre PrevinSubterraneans ... CD
Signature/Sony, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Dave Bailey, Russ Freeman, Art Farmer, Art Pepper, and Jack Sheldon! There's loads of numbers that have a dark, moody finish – mixing together jazz soloing and strings, in a style that really gets at some of the sadness of the story. The features the full original soundtrack album – 12 tracks that include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". CD

New Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... CD
Varese, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the best tunes are the swinging vocal numbers, like "Give A Little More", "Come Live with Me" and "I'll Plant My Own Tree". Plus, the album starts out with the great monologue which begins the film – kind of a dreamy narrative about the beginning of the downfall that destroyed the life of Neely Bruce. Tracks include "It's Impossible", "Theme From Valley Of the Dolls", "Jennifer's Recollection", and "Jennifer's French Movie". CD

Dory Langdon (Dory Previn)My Heart Is A Hunter (aka Leprechauns Are Upon Me) ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
The first ever album by Dory Previn – recorded in the late 50s for Verve, as Dory Langdon! Just a year later, Dory would marry composer and pianist Andre Previn, but their professional relationship had already begun, as Andre plays piano here, along with jazz guitar great Kenny Burrell. It's done in an intimate jazzy style that's stylistically a world away form Dory's singer-songwriter records of the 70s, but it's charming, worthy stuff! Titles include "Can't We Be Enemies", "Lonely Girl In London", "Leprechauns Are Upon Me", "Carefree Love", "No", "Sea Shells", "Gooney Bird", "Just For Now", "Forget Me" and more. CD

Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good ... $1.99
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of tunes originally composed for the musical My Fair Lady. Given Manne's talent for unusual rhythms and melodic percussion, the session's got a bit of a whimsical edge that takes it way past the core compositions that most listeners already knew – into a realm that allows for much great improvisation and play with the melodies. Previn's nicely restrained on the keys, and Vinnegar adds in a good sense of bottom to the set – and titles include "Get Me To The Church On Time", "I Could Have Dance All Night", "Ascot Gavotte", "Show Me", and "With A Little Bit Of Luck". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original heavy black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

New Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

New Art PepperGettin' Together! ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Art Pepper's most classic sets for Contemporary – a record that puts him in the company of the Miles Davis rhythm section – Jimmy Cobb on drums, Paul Chambers on bass, and Wynton Kelly on piano – who make up 3/5 of a quintet that also includes trumpeter Conte Candoli! The tracks open up a bit more from some of Pepper's 50s work in LA – arguably a bit tighter at times, and possibly a bit more "classic" – at least to longtime fans of the set. There's a bit less edge here than on some of Art's other 50s dates, but the album's still a great one – with titles that are a mixture of originals like "Getting Together", "Diane", and "Bijou The Poodle", plus a few other strong numbers, like Chambers' "Whims Of Chambers" and Dory & Andre Previn's "Why Are We Afraid?"

New Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Friends ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
With friends like these, it's easy to sound great – and the record's a trio classic from drummer Shelly Manne, cut with the same associates heard on his famous My Fair Lady album for Contemporary! Piano is by Andre Previn and bass is by Leroy Vinnegar – and as with the other set, Previn's a real surprise here – bursting forth with brightness and presence that are right at home in the setting, and which make us recast our previous conceptions of him as a more cocktail-styled player. The tunes are sometimes longish, which makes for some more inventive interplay between trio members – and titles include "Collard Greens & Black Eyed Peas", "Squatty Roo", "Tangerine", "The Girl Friend", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "Stars Fell On Alabama". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a center split on the spine.)

New Lyle Murphy12 Tone Compositions & Arrangements By Lyle Murphy (aka Gone With The Woodwinds) ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare bit of mid 50s modernism from composer Lyle Murphy – one of the most angular talents on the west coast scene of the time, but an artist who also manages to swing with a nice little groove! On one hand, Murphy's got some key academic inspiration behind his music – as you might guess from the "12 Tone" title – but on another, he still works with a sense of jazz solo energy, so that he lets the players in his group get enough voice into the tunes to shape them into their own. Members of the group include Buddy Collette, Abe Most, Russ Cheever, Jack Dumon, and Chuck Gentry on reeds – plus rhythm from Andre Previn on piano, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tunes have complicated reed interplay, supported by more swinging jazz rhythms – and titles include "Poly Doodle", "Perdido", "Triton", "Fourth Dimension", "Seismograph", and "Pemba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, a split spine with some tape, some stains, two promo stamps, and some pen on the back. Both labels have a promo stamp.)

New VariousCine Jazz On MGM ... CD
Video Arts/Ryko (Japan), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tasty Japanese collection of jazz from someof the greatest MGM and United Artists soundtracks of the 60s and 70s. The range of material is large – and the main point is to show the different jazzy styles used in the tradition of filmmaking. Titles include "Quietly With Feeling (Salt & Pepper)" by Johnny Dankworth, "Three Mile Limited (Farewell My Lovely" by David Shire, "Boston Wrangler (Thomas Crown Affair)" by Michel Legrand, "Scene Of The Crime (How To Murder Your Wife)" by Neal Hefti, "Bad Guys (Fortune Cookie)" by Andre Previn, "Salty Sophie (Two For The Seasaw)" by Andre Previn, "Honeycomb (Lenny)" by Ralph Burns, and "Roslyn (The Misfits)" by Ales North.

New Shelly ManneLil' Abner ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Shelly picks up on a very successful format for his trio of the late 50s – begun with the My Fair Lady album, and followed through with this one – a batch of jazz-based readings of tracks from the hit Broadway musical based on the comic strip Lil Abner. Apart from that bit of history, and the goofy cover, which has Manne dressed as Abner, the overall feel is straight trio work in Shelly's most popular mode of the time – with Andre Previn on the ivories and Leroy Vinnegar on bass. Titles include "Matrimonial Stomp", "Jubilation T Cornpone", "Oh Happy Day", "Namely You", "Past My Prime", and "Progress Is The Root Of All Evil". LP, Vinyl record album

New Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
An odd choice for material, but a surprisingly nice record – and just the kind of session needed to break Barney Kessel out of some of his too-familiar trio modes of the 50s! The record here features jazz takes on tunes from the opera Carmen – in case you didn't figure that out from the title – all adapted by Barney himself, on charts that feature Buddy Collette on flute, Ray Linn on trumpet, Victor Feldman on vibes, and Andre Previn on piano – a lineup that helps keep things creative and playful without sounding too gimmicky. Titles include "Free As A Bird", "If You Dig Me", "A Pad On The Edge Of Town", "The Gypsy's Hip", and "Carmen's Cool". CD
