I just love this album and have listened to it countless times since getting it. It gets 4 stars instead of 5 merely because there is a noticeable hiss which I believe they could have done more to get rid of. The performances of all concerned on this collection of the best songs from "My Fair Lady" are well-nigh perfect. Shelly Mann's drums prove that he is at the top of the heap, Previn is a superb improviser. Highlights include "On the street where you live" and (my own favorite) "With a little bit of luck". Well worth the money.

I used to listen to the original in the 50's in the Sixth Form and later had a cassette copy which was lost in time. Listening to this is like meeting up with an old friend - the memories just flood back.
We always knew that Andre Previn was special, and he has proved it.
A brilliant record, still as good as it was in 1956.

What a group, Shelly Manne, Andre Previn, Leroy Vinnegar, and My Fair Lady this CD's a real swinger. Andre Previn seems to have made so few jazz records and yet in my book he is among the best jazz pianists some how he can improvise on a tune without loosing sight of the melody. Pity he had to spend so much time on the other side.
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.

This CD is an undoubted CLASSIC. A rare opportunity to listen to Andre Previn playing superb piano fronting a very good trio. The score of 'My Fair Lady' is so very good and A.P.s interpretations of the various tracks is nothing short of brilliant. It would be part of my Desert Island choosings, should I be given the chance. Anyone who likes jazz piano has got to hear this. Think I will have to order another copy soon as I will wearout the one I have.

I used to listen to the original in the 50's in a little village café in South Africa. Playing it today gives mne the feeling of being back with my old buddies. Memories come flooding back. We admired Andre Previn for we found he was special.
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.

Andre Previn is best known as a conductor and composer of classical music, but he’s also been active as a jazz pianist since 1945 – though from the late 1960s until the end of the 1980s his classical work took up most of his time. Previn’s main influences as a jazz pianist were Horace Silver and Oscar Peterson. "My Fair Lady", credited to Shelly Manne and his Friends (Manne on drums and Leroy Vinnegar on bass), was one of the biggest selling jazz records of its day, and the first ever to focus entirely on arrangements of songs from a single Broadway show. The Lerner and Loewe musical was a massive hit in 1956 and hugely influential. It clearly impressed Previn and Manne, who, acting on a suggestion from their producer Lester Koenig, were originally intending to produce arrangements of just one or two songs. Instead, they ended up recording a whole album’s worth in a single session.

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.

The only version of MFL I own.
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!

Forget Morecambe and Wise... André Previn truly is a musical master. This album was introduced to me by my father a few months ago, he has pretty much transfered all of his jazz knowledge to me over the past thirty years, but still, a few little musical secrets are lurking around in that head of his - This is one of them.

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
