✨✧ Doris Day & Andre PrevinDuet ... CD
Columbia/Sony (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $8.99
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".

Andre PrevinInside Daisy Clover ... LP
Warner, 1965. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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 PrevinMy Fair Lady ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Sealed ... $9.99
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 Previn & Russ FreemanDouble Play! ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A goofy title and cover – but a really unique session of two-piano jazz, recorded with Russ Freeman and Andre Previn on the keys, plus only the drums of Shelly Manne to provide additional support! The sound is really great – and Previn's especially wonderful here, really stretching out to meet the harder style of Freeman. Both players also seem really inspired by Manne's drum work – and in a way, it almost feels like Shelly's directing the piano from the drum kit, especially on the more uptempo numbers. The notes do a very detailed job of breaking down the piano work, so that you can figure out who's soloing when – and titles include "Who's On First", "In The Cellar Blues", "Called On Account Of Rain", "Fungo", "Safe At Home", and "Double Play".

Shorty Rogers & Andre Previn with Betty BennettIn Collaboration – Featuring The Giants & Betty Bennett (Collaboration/Nobody Else But Me) ... CD
RCA/Atlantic/Jazz City (Spain), 1954/1955. Used ... $14.99
2 rare mid 50s collaborations between pianist Andre Previn and trupeter Shorty Rogers – back to back on one CD! The first half of the CD is 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". Next up is a 1955 vocal album by singer Betty Bennett – recorded for Atlantic, and featuring arrangements and instrumentation by both Rogers and Previn! Betty's got a nice icy west coast cool style of singing – a bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – and players in the group include Harry Klee, Frank Rosolino, Bob Cooper, and Jimmy Giuffre. The tracks are an interesting batch of slighly-exotic numbers, some from shows, and titles include "Sidewalks Of Cuba", "Island In The West Indies", "Tomorrow Mountain", and "Treat Me Rough". CD

Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century/Universal, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... On March 24, 2017
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

Dory Langdon (Dory Previn)My Heart Is A Hunter (aka Leprechauns Are Upon Me) ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $3.99 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

✨✧ Dinah ShoreDinah Sings Previn Plays (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1959/1960. Used ... $7.99
Think what you want about Dinah Shore, she could serve up some pretty great vocals at her best moments – and this album is definitely one of those moments! The style here is laidback and late nite – with Dinah singing alongside backing from the trio of Andre Previn on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Frank Capp on drums – all working in an easygoing mode that comes across with a great small club feel. Previn's piano is especially nice – filled with light flourishes that illuminate the tunes nicely, but in a subtle way that's never too over the top – and usually touched with just a hint of sadness to fit the mood of the songs. Titles include "April In Paris", "Then I'll Be Tired Of You", "The Man I Love", "That Old Feeling", "It Had To Be You", "I'll Be Seeing You", and "If I Had You". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "While We're Young", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "Like Someone In Love", and a duet version of "The Man I Love". CD

Shelly ManneLil' Abner ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
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

VariousLegacy Of Jazz (3CD set – with bonus track)) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
A wealth of rare jazz tracks, mostly from the 50s and 60s – and almost all from the super-huge catalogs of Columbia and RCA Records! The music here is a mix of vocal and instrumental tracks, and the collection does a nice job of mixing in more obscure numbers with classics – which really keeps things interesting as the set moves on. There's a nice sense of flow as the music moves on, showing the development of styles – and the package features 31 tracks that include "Once Upon A Summertime" by Miles Davis, "Body Talk (alt take)" by George Benson, "Little Susie" by Ray Bryant, "Self Portrait In Three Colors" by Charles Mingus, "Capricious" by Gerry Mulligan, "Indian Summer (live)" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Body & Soul" by Coleman Hawkins, "Bill Bailey (alt version)" by Aretha Franklin, "Night & Day (live)" by Helen Merrill, "Jive Hoot" by Bob Brookmeyer, "I Know You Oh So Well" by Andre Previn, "I Got Rhythm (take 1)" by Martial Solal, "Laura" by Charlie Parker, "Don't Stop The Carnival" by Sonny Rollins, "Three To Get Ready" by Dave Brubeck, and 'I'm Through With Love" by Chet Baker.

✨✧ Betty Bennett/Lurlean HunterNobody Else But Me/Blue & Sentimental ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1956/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two rare sides of jazz vocals from Atlantic! Betty Bennett's 1956 album Nobody Else But Me features arrangements by Shorty Rogers and Andre Previn – and a nice icy west coast cool style of singing. The tracks are an interesting batch of slighly-exotic numbers, some from shows, and titles include "Sidewalks Of Cuba", "Island In The West Indies", "Tomorrow Mountain", "This Is The Moment", and "Treat Me Rough". Blue & Sentimental is probably the best-ever album by Lurlean Hunter, an obscure bluesy singer from Chicago! Jimmy Giuffre handled the arrangements, and the record has a bit more polish than some of her other albums. The tracks feature some very nice jazzy arrangements – with Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Jones on piano, and Harry Edison on trumpet. Lurlean's voice is deep and rich, with a sound that's a mix of Ella Fitzgerald and some of the icier singers, like Chris Connor or June Christy. Tracks include "Blue Turning Grey Over You", "Just Imagine", "My Kinda Love", "As Long As I Live", and "The Song Is You". CD
