(4 out of 5 stars)

"Andre Previn has always been a unique figure in the music world. A classical conductor (The San Francisco Symphony, as an example) and an accomplished jazz pianist puts him in a rare league of players. This album is a compilation of 3 LPs recorded in the early sixties. The first 9 selections had strings and unlike the musak that this could have become, the solos of Previn are tasteful and to the point. The next 2 selections are a quintet session of Kurt Weill tunes. JJ Johnson on trombone is wonderful and stands out. Then back to the strings; but this time the strings sound more percussive and moody; almost like minature film scores that Previn feels at home with. The album ends with another purely jazz small ensemble. An album like this would have never flown today; but the taste and class of Previn and his cohorts could make it so once again."
GREAT JAZZ,... but someone help me , please!
