Adolph Deutsch/Andre PrevinApartment/Fortune Cookie ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. Used ... $12.99
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 PrevinDead Ringer ... LP
Warner, 1964. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A wonderfully gripping score from Andre Previn – one of his best early dramatic soundtracks! The work's got a style that really befits the dark image on the cover – muted strings that rumble in the background, as other bits of instrumentation – horns, harpsichord, and violin – emerge from the almost watery backdrop of sound. There's a tensness here that's really great – and the sharp-edged harpsichord almost recalls later Italian use of the instrument, especially by Morricone. Titles include "The Morgue", "Edie's Theme", "This Was His Room", "Hidden Jewelry", "The Police Is Waiting", "Figueroa", and "The Dog Attacks". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andre PrevinMy Fair Lady ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good ... $3.99
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 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

Andre Previn & His PalsGigi ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Sealed ... $4.99
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! 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" – which have the fierceness of the film's characters set loose on record (an important thing in the years before you could watch a DVD copy of the movie at home!) 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 – and leads into tracks that include "It's Impossible", "Theme From Valley Of The Dolls", "Jennifer's Recollection", and "Jennifer's French Movie".

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

Diahann CarrollPorgy & Bess ... CD
United Artists/DRG, 1959. Used ... $11.99
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". CD

✨✧ Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1956. Used ... $2.99
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. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Frank SinatraFrank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems Of Color ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Used ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Jazz (3CD set – with bonus track)) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.
