André Previn - 4 to Go !

This CD is one of the pianist's strongest. Teamed up with guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Shelly Manne, Previn performs six standards (including "No Moon at All," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" and "Like Someone In Love"), plus an original apiece by each of the musicians. The musicians, all friends, show obvious mutual respect, and despite a lack of rehearsal, the swinging results are generally quite memorable.
