5.0 out of 5 stars Tracks, Albums -It's Delovely-It Only Happens When I Dance With You
Six classic albums over four CDs for the price of just about one CD means you get an awful lot for not a lot of money.
This set by Andre Previn is excellent value.
But it's not clear which albums are on the set.

The albums are
Collaboration,
Plays Songs By Vernon Duke,
Double Play,
Dinah Sings And
Previn Plays, Pal Joey,...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great Musician
Andre Previn is a great musician and Orchestra conductor. Personally I think he should stick to his jazz trio when he plays piano. It doesn't really work with an orchestra.

This review is from: Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Andre Previn (Audio CD)
Six classic albums over four CDs for the price of just about one CD means you get an awful lot for not a lot of money.
This set by Andre Previn is excellent value.
But it's not clear which albums are on the set.

The albums are
Collaboration,
Plays Songs By Vernon Duke,
Double Play,
Dinah Sings And
Previn Plays, Pal Joey, Secret Songs For Young Lovers, West Side Story and A Touch Of Elegance.

The Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.
The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case. Enhanced to boot makes this a tempting buy.
Amazon, at the time of writing, has not provided a track list.
So this may be of interest and use?

As always if you see any typos add a note and I will correct and credit you with the correction- just add a com
