TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 28 April 2007
Andre Previn has diversified his talent through classical and piano jazz with composing credits too comprehensive to detail. His piano skills, utilised to devastating effect on a series of show scores, reached ultimate perfection on the most celebrated of these when Andre teamed with drummer Shelly Manne and Leroy Vinnegar on double-bass for jazz-tinged songs from the newly-opened MY FAIR LADY in 1956. Listening to brilliant interpretations of GET ME TO THE CHURCH ON TIME, I'VE GROWN ACCUSTOMED TO HER FACE, SHOW ME and five others, is indeed worth the price of this compilation alone but a previous teaming with Shelly Manne in 1953 also brings forth HONEYSUCKLE ROSE and BLACK AND BLUE.

Previn's earlier expertise is also recalled by standards recorded in 1946/47, with Ellington's I GOT IT BAD AND THAT AIN'T GOOD and TAKE THE "A" TRAIN heading equally impressive versions of THIS CAN'T BE LOVE and JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS from Richard Rodgers and Cole Porter respectively. Such seminal recordings display the extent of influence eminent keyboard stylists, Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson and Nat King Cole played on Previn's developing piano skills with overall this collection displaying a timeless quality.
