CD Reviews

One of the greatest jazz piano trio recordings of all time
Jazz Pianist | Milwaukee, WI USA | 03/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From a fellow jazz pianist, Previn is at the height of his creative powers here, swinging madly and playing at a very, very high level. From the slow, intoxicating, remarkable late-nite-blues "Much Too Late" to the exquisitely beautiful "It Could Happen to You"--one of the most glorious jazz piano ballads ever recorded--this is great, great music. Red Mitchell and Frankie Capp provide stellar support and rapport. Easily Previn's greatest jazz outing of all time. Love the finest in jazz piano music? Here is some of the best."

"As a huge fan of Andre Previn and the various trios he put together through the years, I was stunned when I played this CD for the first time for a group of friends. They were as shocked as I was. This recording in no way represented that unique classic light inventive jazz style of Andre Previn. Even the producer of the album agrees. On the printed album notes, he says,"His (Previn's) funky sound is definitely of the era, but all his own..." That era was 1958. There are 6 recordings in this album. Bands 1 and 6 have a tempo so fast, the melody is quickly devoured. Bands 2,3,4, and 5 are so SLOOOOOOOW, there is never a melody to begin with.

If you want to hear Andre Previn at his best without his short-lived "funky sound" of 1958, pick up a copy of his "Old Friends" album. But as far as this album is concerned, forget it."
