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".

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Pal Joey
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, 1955. Poor
A lively little set from Previn – and a nice small combo set from the mid 50s! The group's a quartet with guitar, bass, and drums – but Previn's the main star of the set, tinkling away on the keys with a fluid sound that has as much jazz as some of his later recordings for Contemporary. ...

Magic Windows
Columbia, 1981. Very Good-
A great little soul album from Herbie Hancock – but one that's often lost in the valleys between his bigger hits of the time! The record was cut in the space right before Herbie's big "Rockit" success – and it's a sweet bit of funky fusion that has a good dose of R&B in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great early work from this pianist who was a big early influence on Sun Ra! The set features some of Chittison's best-recorded material – in a trio with the great Everett Barksdale on guitar and Abie Baker on bass. LP, Vinyl record album

New Groove
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+
Although Pee Wee Russell had spent most of his career as a trad player, the 1960s showed him becoming something of an ersatz modernist, still playing in the guise of older styles, but adding in approaches that were much more far-reaching than his earlier work, and which showed that, like Coleman ...

A serious piece of jazz orchestral work – directed by John Lewis, conducted by Harold Farberman, and featuring solos by Jerome Richardson, Joe Newman, Dick Katz, and Richard Davis. The work's perhaps Lewis' most seriously avant garde on record – taking off even further from previous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Man
Columbia/Nemperor, 1978. Very Good
A bit more high concept than before for Stanley Clarke – almost a suite of sorts, but one that still has some great standout tunes in the mix! Although Clarke used to bring his higher concepts to bear in the space of a single song, this one's more of a full exploration of the character in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock further expands his cosmic vision in this groundbreaking album of free-flowing fusiony tracks – a record that really steps up his range of keyboards, mixing in both acoustic and electric pianos, mellotron, and even a bit of spacey moog from the legendary Patrick Gleeson!
