New Jackie & RoyLike Sing – Songs By Dory & Andre Previn ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $9.99
A really unique little record from Jackie & Roy – one that has them singing a super-fresh batch of tunes from budding songwriters Andre and Dory (nee Langdon) Previn! The tunes are all really great – the kind of playful material that seems to bring out the best in Jackie & Roy, on a level that matches all those excellent Tommy Wolf/Fran Landesman tunes that sparkled so much on the pair's 50s albums for ABC. Backing is in a small combo mode, and the set has the best energy of Jackie & Roy's earlier years – in a format that sometimes has them singing duet, sometimes trading lines, and sometimes stepping out solo. Titles include "Like Love", "The Runaround", "Sing Me An Abstract Song", "Control Yourself", "You're Married", and "Where, I Wonder". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

Andre PrevinFortune Cookie ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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. Titles include "The Bad Guys", "The Nice Guys", "Second Chance", "Waltz Of The Fortune Cookies", and "The Detectives". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Andre PrevinInside Daisy Clover ... LP
Warner, 1965. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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
(White label promo.)

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 some wear.)

Andre Previn & His PalsGigi ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Andre Previn's got some very hip pals here – drummer Shelly Manne and bassist Red Mitchell – both frequent partners during the late 50s, especially on this classic run of jazz-Broadway records for Contemporary! The spirit here is very much like that of the famous My Fair Lady date made by the trio – a strong extrapolation of familiar tunes from a hit show – taken way out into instrumental jazz territory – with less thought of the core melody, and more focus on the tunes use as vehicles for jazz improvisation. Previn's piano has hardly sounded better – and more creative, both in tone and timing – an inspiration that certainly comes from Manne's inventive drum work – and titles include "Aunt Alicia's March", "I Remember It Well", "The Parisians", "She Is Not Thinking Of Me", "Thank Heaven For Little Girls", and "A Toujours". LP, Vinyl record album

New Andre PrevinRollerball ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Most of this soundtrack is orchestral and classical, but the record includes a fantastic funky tune by Previn – the great "Executive Party", played during a tripped-out party scene in the film, and featuring a mix of funky bass, wah wah guitar, and some weird spooky moogy bits that sound really really wonderful! The track's also matched by "Executive Party Dance", which has more moog and some nice organ, and is an almost equally great funky tune! LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing. Cover has a cutout mark.)

New Adolph Deutsch/Andre PrevinApartment/Fortune Cookie ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1958. Used ... $5.99
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

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 ManneLil' Abner ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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
(Original yellow label pressing.)

Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
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

New Diahann CarrollPorgy & Bess ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sultry set of vocals – Diahann backed by the Andre Previn Trio, running through mellow versions of tracks from Gershwin's Porgy & Bess. Although this was one of countless albums to come out in the late 50s, designed to coincide with the release of the film, the feeling here is quite intimate and laidback – not nearly the "cash in" effort of other records at the time. Titles include "Oh I Can't Sit Down", "Porgy I Is Your Woman", "Summertime", "There's A Boat That's Leavin Soon For New York", and "I Loves You Porgy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label deep groove pressing. Cover has some light wear, with some light stains on the back.)

New Lyle Murphy12 Tone Compositions & Arrangements By Lyle Murphy (aka Gone With The Woodwinds) ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Used ... 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 light wear, a small sticker on the back, and splitting on the spine.)
