We always knew that Andre Previn was special, and he has proved it.
A brilliant record, still as good as it was in 1956.
Vinnegar and Manne do tend to play supporting roles but are vital to the driving piano. A good CD, in fact, a very good CD, if you like, My Fair Lady, jazz trios or good music buy it. You won't be sorry.
A brilliant record of this amazing quartet led by Shelly Mann, it is still as enjoyable as it was when I got it for my birthday in 1956.
I would have given this a six star rating if I could.
Manne is known as the quintessential West Coast Jazz drummer, and Vinnegar’s nickname was “The Walker”, a reference to his frequent use of walking bass lines. Both players help set up the infectious rhythm of the second track – “On The Street Where You Live”. But it’s Previn’s piano that leads – there’s a slow solo introduction before the trio comes in with the main theme, Previn using characteristic tight and rich block chords. The arrangers clearly had fun throughout the album varying the harmony, rhythm and styles of the original material. Manne and Previn also produced a West Side Story album (with Red Mitchell on bass), but this one is better.
My first album acquired in the late 50's and which got me through years of hard study at University of Bristol 58-61 when failure in one subject meant one was sent down!
SM also plays slightly ahead of the beat without racing which explains the unique swing attained by this trio.
Previn is one of the very few classical pianist/conductors who can play superb jazz!
André Previn is still locked into my childhood memory as either advertising ferguson televisions, VCR's. He was also immortalised with Morecambe and Wise during the famous concert sketch, which to this day, i still find as funny as Victor Borge piano routine.
Ok, I admit it, i DONT like musicals. I watch plenty of the Disney variety with the children and after a four hour car journey with the jungle book, mulan, and the rest of the collection pouring out of the car audio system Shelly Mann was a welcomed contrast, albeit a little "Musical"
Right from the off "Get Me To The Church On Time" thrilled me with Previn's excellent musicianship and from frowning at my fathers "just type in Shelly Manne, My fair lady" into spotify ( not a plug by the way ) I was hooked. Its an excellent album with some inventive and unique arrangements that keep me listening to this great music.
Thanks Dad! love son

Recorded over 60 years ago, but man, does it swing! I'd recommend this album to anyone who likes 'straight ahead' jazz. A real classic and here it is on CD.Published 7 months ago by R. Dodd
Long story but this is the album that first turned me on to modern jazz in the 1960's. Shelly Manne at his best, great drummrr/musician who developed a style of his own especially... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Tony Fuller
