Shelly Manne, Andre Previn & Red MitchellBells Are Ringing ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre PrevinFortune Cookie ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $0.99
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
(Sealed original pressing! One bottom corner of the cover has a light stain, but record should be fine.)

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
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 2 stickers on the front and a name in pen on the back.)

Andre PrevinSound Stage! ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the jazziest albums that Andre Previn cut during his early 60s years at Columbia Records – a set that has Previn's piano alongside bigger backings from Johnny Williams – who's at his most sprightly soundtrack best for the record! Things are a lot more upbeat and swinging than some of the other Previn records of the period – which have more of a mood music vibe – and the whole thing has a vibrant feel throughout – on titles that include "Summertime", "Stella By Starlight", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Around The World", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "When You Wish Upon A Star".

Andre Previn & Gerry MulliganSubterraneans ... LP
MGM, 1959. Very Good ... $11.99
A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! 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. Tracks include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre Previn & His PalsGigi ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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".

✨✧ Adolph Deutsch/Andre PrevinApartment/Fortune Cookie ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Andre PrevinAndre Previn In Hollywood/Soft & Swinging ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of instrumental gems from 1963 – back to back on a single CD! Hollywood features the piano of Andre Previn, mixed with some larger orchestrations by John Williams – all at a level that's got a great sort of moody, late nite vibe! Previn still holds onto some of his best jazzy elements, but also echoes his roots in 50s mood music with this record too – and Williams' charts are nicely complex in their use of color, at a level that's more interesting than the usual session of this nature. Titles include "Laura", "I'm A Dreamer Aren't We All", "The Second Time Around", "A Second Chance", and "Look Again". Soft & Swinging has Andre Previn's core trio augmented by larger arrangements from the pianist himself – often gentle, with a mellow sort of vibe – and one that still lets Andre step out in the lead on these lightly-tripping piano solos. Titles include "Lose Me Now", "Too Late My Love", "I Must Have That Man", "Don't Blame Me", "Exactly Like You", and "It's A Most Unusual Day". CD

✨✧ Shorty Rogers & Andre PrevinCollaboration (original cover) ... LP
RCA, 1954. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

Betty BennettNobody Else But Me ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $89.99
An obscure vocal jazz gem from the LA scene of the 50s – recorded for Atlantic, but done in a style that's a fair bit like the best work for Bethlehem or Mode at the time! Betty Bennett sings here with backings from Shorty Rogers on one side, and Andre Previn on the other – often in a mode that's slightly dark, and subdued – gently moving forth with a nice sense of restraint. Betty's vocals burst out nicely at times – showing a nicely illustrative style, especially on some of the more story-based tunes – and there's a nice choice of material here that's a refreshing change from some of the overdone standards on other vocal albums. Tracks include "Sidewalks Of Cuba", "Island In The West Indies", "Tomorrow Mountain", "This Is The Moment", and "Treat Me Rough". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with the Long Playing Unbreakable logo – nice and clean! Cover is nice too.)

Ella FitzgeraldNice Work If You Can Get It – Ella Fitzgerald & Andrew Previn Do Gershwin ... LP
Pablo, 1983. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
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".

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $13.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy stereo pressing. Cover has light wear & notes in pen.)

Julie LondonCalendar Girl/Your Number Please ... CD
EMI/Capitol, 1956/1959. Used ... $9.99
2 great ones from Julie London – back to back on one CD! Calender Girl is one of Julie's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calender – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on. The record's certainly one of her campier efforts – but in a great way – and it's further agumented by a great cover that has pinup images of Julie in a setting specific to each month! Titles include "June In January", "February Brings The Rain", "Melancholy March", "Memphis In June", and "Time For August". Your Number Please is great too! Julie 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 a phone sex ad! The music delivers on the suggestiveness – and features lush backings by Andre Previn, and an assortment of tunes made famous by male vocal greats of the 50s – including "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".

Shelly ManneLil' Abner ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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

Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good- ... $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". LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Friends ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MitchellsGet Those Elephants Out'A Here ... LP
Metrojazz, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
The group billed as "The Mitchells" is an unusual "family" projects put together by Leonard Feather – featuring Whitey Mitchell on bass, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, and Red Mitchell on both bass and piano – none of them related, but coming together here because they all share a last name! Whitey directs the music on the record, and is really the boss of the set – and other players include Frank Rehak on trombone, Pepper Adams on baritone sax, and Andre Previn on piano – working together in a tightly-focused way that carries some of the hallmarks of some of Adams' other albums of the period. Titles include the originals "Three Cheers", "Blues For Brian", "Get Those Elephants Outta Here", and "Monster Rally". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew PrevinKing Size ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of Andre Previn's great late 50s jazz sides for Contemporary Records – all of which stand as some of his finest recorded work ever, and make us always wonder why he'd ever parted company with the label! The set's got a simple, focused groove that's really great – no too-flowery Previn lines on piano, just tight jazz piano with a masterful touch – a bit like Red Garland at his best during the same stretch, although a bit less bluesy overall. The trio here features Red Mitchell on bass and Frankie Capp on drums – and titles include "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "I'll Remember April", and "Low & Inside" – many done in longish takes! LP, Vinyl record album

The title only gets it half-right, because although these 18 tracks contain some cool folksy groovers by folks like Barbara & Ernie, Christine Harwood, and Keef Hartley, they've also got some very cool stripped down jazz funk tracks with a spare sample-laden groove. Cuts like this include "Holy Thursday" by David Axelrod, "Midnight's Theme" by Manzell, "Stringtronics" by Tropicola, "Higher Ground" by Hugo Montenegro, "Crab Apple Jam" by Jayson Lindh, and more by Andre Previn, Bill Conti, Ronnie Foster, and The Heath Brothers.

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

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... 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
