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

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

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

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $2.99
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+ ... $9.99
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".

Diahann CarrollPorgy & Bess ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $7.99
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

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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

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

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".

✨✧ Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some bubbles in the gloss along the spine.)

✨✧ Julie LondonYour Number Please ... LP
Liberty, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Lyle MurphyGone With The Woodwinds ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare bit of mid 50s modernism from composer Lyle Murphy – one of the most angular talents on the west coast scene of the time, but an artist who also manages to swing with a nice little groove! On one hand, Murphy's got some key academic inspiration behind his music – as you might guess from the "12 Tone" title – but on another, he still works with a sense of jazz solo energy, so that he lets the players in his group get enough voice into the tunes to shape them into their own. Members of the group include Buddy Collette, Abe Most, Russ Cheever, Jack Dumon, and Chuck Gentry on reeds – plus rhythm from Andre Previn on piano, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tunes have complicated reed interplay, supported by more swinging jazz rhythms – and titles include "Poly Doodle", "Perdido", "Triton", "Fourth Dimension", "Seismograph", and "Pemba". CD

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.

✨✧ Art PepperGettin' Together! ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Used ... 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?"

✨✧ Frank SinatraFrank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems Of Color ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible oddity in the Sinatra catalog at Capitol – one of the few albums that actually features him as an orchestra conductor, not a singer. Others we can recall with Frank in this mode are Capitol albums by Peggy Lee and Dean Martin – but Tone Poems is unique, a real "concept" album that has Sinatra working through color-based tunes ("Yellow", "Green", "Red", "Silver", and so on), written by some of the top arrangers of his years, including Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Gordon Jenkins, Andre Previn, and Alec Wilder. The overall approach is more serious and less hokey than you'd expect – and while we certainly miss Frank's vocals, the scope of the album also shows his rich growth as an artist during the Capitol years.
