Format: Audio CD
It's difficult to understand the reviewer who calls this album "over-improvised"; after all, improvisation is at the very heart of jazz. Here, Previn sounds a bit like Oscar Peterson. He plays eight selections from the Jerome Kern musical Show Boat. Six of these are standards. The other two are the obscure: "Life on the Wicked Stage" and "I Might Fall Back on You." In addition, the pianist contributes three newer pieces with the uptempo blues "Lickety Split" having his most impressive solo. He gives a bitonal treatment to the usually sweet "Make Believe", which some may feel takes a bit away from the memorable melody. Previn's interpretations of the other pieces are melodic, respectful and they do swing. Guitarist Mundell Lowe contributes with an occasional solo and bassist Ray Brown and drummer Grady Tate are typically excellent in support. This fine bop-oriented album shows that Andre Previn (who has spent most of the past three decades in the classical music world) is still among the top jazz pianist around.

This is a splendid performance of the classic score, displaying Previn's highly inspired and delicate pianism. Guitarist Mundell Lowe is equally superb!

The group is outstanding - Previn is his usual consummate musician - a couple of the tracks work pretty well - Make Believe, Bill, Why Do I Love You - all the great Jerome Kern Show Boat favorites are here, but interestingly, not enough actual music to fill a CD - so they used several other tracks from various sources to make up the 55 - 60 minutes contained on the disc. When you analyze this great musical, there's not as much music as in some of the other great Broadway musicals.
This is not to knock the recording - it's perfection - late (current era?) Andre Previn, as opposed to another one that I bought at the same time from his younger days in the 1950 when My Fair Lady was first on Broadway. He still has his jazz chops after all these years on the podium for The London Symphony. It just goes to show how interelated all good music is, whether what we describe as "classical" or "jazz".

Able to follow first three selections. After these, I was lost. Excellent sound recording - production. I can only recommend this album if you are a fan of pretty heavy improvised jazz interpretations.
