André Previn Trio - King Size !

The multi-talented Andre Previn is heard on this recording as the leader of a trio with bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Frankie Capp. Previn always had his own swing/bop piano style, and he is in top form on two of his originals (including the bluish "Much Too Late") and four superior standards. This fine release gives one an excellent example of Previn's skills as a jazz pianist.

These are awesome recordings...all stuff that my dad used to play on our player when I was much younger. Much appreciated for these as there are quite a few here that I forgot about. Any chance you could share the password? Your user name - as noted by Edu - either with an initial cap or lower case, does not seem to work. Many thanks!
