New 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.)

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good .... $6.99
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
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and some light stains.)

Andre Previn & JJ JohnsonAndre Previn & JJ Johnson Play Mack The Knife, Bilbao Song, & Other Kurt Weill Music ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good+ .... $1.99
A surprisingly wonderful little record – one of the freshest and most modern recordings we've heard from either player! The team of Previn and Johnson is a surprisingly good fit here – partially because they each keep their voices strongly enough that the tunes have this strange sort of counterpoint that makes them work well as versions of Weill's original compositions. Previn's piano has some incredibly dark edges that we never would have expected – and Johnson's blowing with a moody, somber tone that goes nicely off-course in the right way. The rest of the group features only Red Mitchell on bass and Frank Capp on drums – making for a really spare setting that only further emphasizes the tremendous interplay between trombone and piano. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "Barbara Song", "Surabaya Johnny", "Bilbao Song", and "Seerauberjenny". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye demo pressing. Spine has a spot of tape & a rip. Back cover has a demo stamp.)

Shorty Rogers & Andre PrevinCollaboration (original cover) ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good- Gatefold .... $11.99
A rare mid 50s collaboration between pianist Andre Previn and trumpeter Shorty Rogers – an instrumental collaboration between the pair – one that's mostly set up in the mode of Rogers style of the time with his Giants group – but which also really sparkles tremendously with the addition of Previn's brightly-colored piano lines! We'd honestly never thought that highly of Andre's work until hearing this set – and his presence here really adds a new dimension to the Shorty Rogers groove of the 50s – a set of tones that spring out wonderfully, and really illuminate the set! Other players include Bud Shank, Milt Bernhart, Jimmy Giuffre, and Bob Cooper – on 13 titles that include "It's Delovely", "Heat Wave", "40 Below", "Claudia", "General Cluster", "Everything I've Got", "Call For Cole", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, discoloration due to aging, a split top seam, some splitting and tape on the other seams, and a few light stains.)

New Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good .... $7.99
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 yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a bit of splitting on the spine, but is nice overall.)

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ .... $9.99
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 Dory Langdon (Dory Previn)My Heart Is A Hunter (aka Leprechauns Are Upon Me) ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Frank SinatraTone Poems Of Color ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Used .... Out Of Stock
An incredible oddity in the Sinatra catalog at Capitol – one of the few albums that actually features him as an orchestra conductor, not a singer. Others we can recall with Frank in this mode are Capitol albums by Peggy Lee and Dean Martin – but Tone Poems is unique, a real "concept" album that has Sinatra working through color-based tunes ("Yellow", "Green", "Red", "Silver", and so on), written by some of the top arrangers of his years, including Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Gordon Jenkins, Andre Previn, and Alec Wilder. The overall approach is more serious and less hokey than you'd expect – and while we certainly miss Frank's vocals, the scope of the album also shows his rich growth as an artist during the Capitol years. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has wear, a few pen marks, two peeled spots and aged tape along all seams.)
