Doris Day & Andre PrevinDuet ... CD
Columbia/Sony, 1962. Used ... $4.99
Beautiful work from singer Doris Day – and a record that may well be her jazziest for Columbia – thanks to backing from the Andre Previn trio! The pianist is still at the height of his early jazz powers here – able to solo boldly when needed, but almost more equipped as a painter in tonal color – which he uses beautifully to emphasize all the right emotive currents in Day's vocals. The approach is great – quite sophisticated, and almost at the level of a Chris Connor record at times – and very different than the Doris you might expect from her comedic films of the time. Yet that sense of surprise is also what always made her one of the secret sexy stars of her generation – as comes through beautifully on tunes that include "Yes", "Close Your Eyes", "Remind Me", "Daydreaming", "Give Me Time", and "Nobody's Heart".

✨✧ Shelly Manne, Andre Previn & Red MitchellBells Are Ringing ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked set from the late 50s show-meets-jazz run of Shelly Manne and Andre Previn – a cool jazz instrumental take on the score to Bells Are Ringing! As with other Manne/Previn pairings, the music is incredibly sprightly – some of the best jazz Andre ever recorded in the 50s, with piano lines that are a lot more fluid and freewheeling than on his mood music sets for other labels – and Manne's careful approach to percussion makes for lots of light, lyrical rhythms – which have plenty of support in spirit from the wonderful bass of Red Mitchell. Titles include two versions of "The Party's Over" – one slow, one as a "party" version – plus "I Met A Girl", "Just In Time", "It's A Perfect Relationshi", "Is It A Crime", "Mu Cha Cha", and "Long Before I Knew You".

✨✧ Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Mono yellow label pressing with deep groove.)

Dory Langdon (Dory Previn)Leprechauns Are Upon Me ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album

Les BrownComposer's Holiday ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Composers Holiday has Les Brown taking on a really great batch of tunes – including material written for the date by Marty Paich, Andre Previn, Elmer Bernstein, and Alfred Newman – all well-known composers on the Hollywood scene, certainly not taking a holiday from their work for this set! There's a nicely dynamic feel to most of the numbers – almost soundtrack jazz at points, and certainly more than the updated swing of other Les Brown albums – proof that he could still find a new space to expand his talents strongly in the 50s. Titles include "Tropics At Five", "Apple Valley", "Lament For A Key", "How Now Brown Cow", "Brown In Fourths", and "Bone Voyage". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has a sticker on the spine and a small split on the top seam.)

Diahann CarrollPorgy & Bess ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $6.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red label pressing with deep groove.)

Johnny MandelHarper ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Great stuff – a tight jazzy score by Johnny Mandel to this obscure cop film starring Paul Newman as the 45-weilding Harper! The instrumentals have a very nice jazzy cop theme sound, and there's a few vocal cuts, including "As Sure As You're Born" with lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman, and vocals by Sam Fletcher; "Quietly There", by Morgan Ames with vocals by Ruth Price; and "Livin' Alone", with lyrics by Andre & Dory Previn. Orchestrations by Dick Hazard, Bill Holman, and Billy Byers – and the record is one of Mandel's grooviest from the 60s! Titles include "Magnus Cum Louder", "Harper", "Quietly There", "Mexican Breakfast", and "Bel Air". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing.)

Dinah ShoreSomebody Loves Me ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1959. Used ... $18.99
Warm Capitol magic from Dinah Shore – a singer we sometimes forget about, then fall in love with all over again when we hear a record like this! Shore's got a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a sense of flow that really sets her apart, and a way of being slightly sentimental, but without ever being hokey – especially at this maturing point in her career. If you only know her early work with bands, or her later TV personality, you'll find a whole different artist here – singing with lush Andre Previn charts on tunes that include "My Buddy", "East Of The Sun", "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Somebody Loves Me", and "I Hadn't Anyone Till You".

✨✧ Shelly ManneLil' Abner ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Original yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, with an ink stamp. Label has an ink stamp.)
