Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While Gershwin gets top billing here, Previn's the one commanding center stage with his most striking jazz outing since returning to the idiom. His ingenuous arrangements, for one, have acquired organic urgency, such as the elemental "Bartok-boogie" treatment of "They All Laughed," or the quirky recasting of "I Got Rhythm." Light-fingered Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson passages take unexpected, asymmetrical detours fraught with risk. Each selection rings out with unfettered interplay and a genuine joy in discovery. Previn and Finck anticipate and play off each other's ideas like a team of well-rehearsed pickpockets. When you buy this disc, hold onto your wallet! --Jed Distler

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate performance January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Andre Previn is probably the most relevant Gershwin performer out there. He captures Gershwin intensity and understands that his music has elements of both academic and jazz music. This is key to really make the performance shine. Gershwin music has been performed by almost any classica piano player and by many orchestras around the world. This new recordings by Previn on piano and David Finck on bass present a joyful and intimate performace that makes you feel like you where listening to the performace inside the studio at the time these were recorded. Its a very enjoyable CD with bold arregements. In a way, these could interpretations that Gershwin himself would enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Talent Always Shines! January 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The music of Gershwin interpreted by the talent of Previn, what more could you ask for? The recording is crisp and with depth which is important in the areas of Finisk's double base solos. Put it on, turn down the lights and just listen....

5.0 out of 5 stars 'S Wonderful July 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a marvelous record. Previn and Fink are clearly enjoying themselves and their spontaneity and verve are infectious. The recording is quite natural too. This is loads of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Previn plays Gershwin from Broadway August 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is one of a number of CDs that André Previn has made playing tunes from the great American songbook. For some of these he has recorded as soloist. For other CDs he has other jazz players accompanying him. Here he is partnered by David Finck on double bass for 14 glorious Gershwin tunes. We start with a really swinging arrangement of `They all laughed'. We then slow the tempo for a delightful arrangement of `Someone to watch over me' that obviously owes much to Oscar Peterson. We have an up-tempo `Lady be good' and `A foggy day' that has something of the Jacques Loussier touch about it. Next we are treated to a skilful medley of `Soon' and `Do it again'; then into `I got rhythm', `Embraceable you', `Fascinating rhythm, `Love walked in', `The man I love' and still more. It's all `S'wonderful'.

1.0 out of 5 stars Headache-inducing July 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know what Previn and Finck were trying to do here. Fortunately I got this out of the library and did not waste money on it. After the first half-dozen or so tracks I took it out of the CD player. It was absolutely grating - dissonant and cacophonous.
