United Artists, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $3.99

✨✧ Adolph Deutsch/Andre PrevinApartment/Fortune Cookie ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. New Copy ... $19.99
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
(Limited edition of 1000 copies.)

Andre PrevinAndre Previn In Hollywood/Soft & Swinging ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Andre PrevinElmer Gantry ... LP
United Artists, 1960. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the boldest scores we've ever heard from Andre Previn! Previn's usually known for lusher, warmer sounds – and some more playful soundtrack moments, too – but this score is very serious, dramatic, and deep – a full orchestral mode on most numbers, without any traces of Previn's jazzier roots. The music makes for a great accompaniment to Burt Lancaster's role as the title character, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
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+ ... $12.99
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".

Shorty Rogers & Andre PrevinCollaboration (original cover) ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
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".

Andre PrevinMy Fair Lady ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

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

Liberty, 1959. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good- ... $4.99
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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.

Contemporary/OJC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Atlantic/Collectables, 1956/1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two rare 50s jazz sides on Atlantic, issued as a 2CD nice price set! Love Story features the successful Dave Pell Octet of the mid 50s – a group who was playing a lot of swing-oriented gigs at colleges around the country, hence the title. The set features Pell leading players that include Andre Previn, Don Fagerquist, and other smooth west coasters – and tracks include "Love Is The Sweetest Thing", "Let's Do It", "I've Found a New Baby", and "I've Got A Crush On You". Piano & Pen features the talents of Dick Katz – as both a pianist and composer, working here with quartets that feature either Jimmy Raney or Chuck Wayne on guitar. Katz originals include "Timonium", "Aurora", and "Duologue No 1" – and other tracks include jazz standards like "Scrapple From The Apple", "Glad To Be Unhappy", and "Afternoon In Paris". CD
