Gerry Mulligan & Andre PrevinJazz Soundtracks (Subterraneans/I Want To Live) ... CD
MGM/Gambit (Spain), 1958/1959. Used ... $9.99
2 great jazz soundtracks from the west coast scene of the 50s – back to back on one CD! First up is The Subterraneans – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel of the same name! 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 CD features the full original soundtrack album – 12 tracks that include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". Next up is the small combo recording of tracks from the legendary jazz score to I Want To Live! Although not featured that prominently in the film, the band of Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and others were a pretty tight little group – even though it was strange to see this west coast white bread group playing in scenes of jazz/crime/evil! The record's a nice one, though, and features some of the livelier playing you'll hear from the players. Tracks are long, and titles include "Black Nightgown", "Night Watch", and the raging "Theme From I Want To Live". CD

Andre PrevinMy Fair Lady ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good ... $1.99
Andre Previn's second take on the score to My Fair Lady – and a set that's not nearly as well known as his Contemporary Records version of the music with Shelly Manne! This date's a quartet session – featuring Herb Ellis on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Frank Capp on drums – and Previn gets plenty of room to show off his chops on piano, maybe even more so than before at Contemporary – moving through modes that range from mellow to quite frenetic, depending on the tune. Titles include "I'm An Ordinary Man", "With A Little Bit Of Luck", "The Rain In Spain", "You Did It", "On The Street Where You Live", "Get Me To The Church On Time", and "Without You".

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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 & His PalsGigi ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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".

Andre Previn/Jackie CainTwo For The See Saw ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Near Mint- ... $3.99
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

✨✧ Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! 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" – which have the fierceness of the film's characters set loose on record (an important thing in the years before you could watch a DVD copy of the movie at home!) 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 – and leads into tracks that include "It's Impossible", "Theme From Valley Of The Dolls", "Jennifer's Recollection", and "Jennifer's French Movie".

✨✧ Andre PrevinFortune Cookie ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldNice Work If You Can Get It – Ella Fitzgerald & Andrew Previn Do Gershwin ... LP
Pablo, 1983. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't be put off by the Al Hirschfeld image on the front of this one – because the record's a nicely laidback effort that gets way past the show biz cover! The sound here is extremely spare – and Ella's singing with only the piano of Andre Previn for accompaniment – possibly the first time she ever worked this way, in a manner that has all the intimacy of a late nite, small club performance. The tunes are all Gershwin numbers, but presented in ways that differ greatly from Ella's Verve Songbook reading of them a few decades before – and titles include "A Foggy Day", "Nice Work If You Can Get", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off", and "But Not For Me".

United Artists/DRG, 1959. Used ... $9.99
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". CD

Julie LondonYour Number Please (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Liberty/EMI (Japan), 1959. Used ... $9.99
Julie London couldn't look sexier on the cover – reclining in bed, on the telephone, breast falling out of her nightgown, with the suggestive title emblazoned across the top – almost like some sleezy ad from the back pages of a local newspaper! The music more than delivers on the suggestiveness, too – and features lush backings by Andre Previn, on an assortment of tunes made famous by male vocal greats of the 50s – tunes that really take on a new sense of life in the hands of Julie – getting special up-close treatment that's really great! Titles include "A Stranger In Town", "Learnin The Blues", "One For My Baby", "It's A Blue World", "When I Fall In Love", and "The More I See You". CD

Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1956. Used ... $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".

Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Friends ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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".

✨✧ Art PepperGettin' Together! ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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?"
