One of pianist Andre Previn's first recordings after leaving the Contemporary label, this trio workout with bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Frank Capp is very much in the same straight-ahead genre. Previn's trio performs ten show tunes from ten different productions. Virtually all of the songs are still quite well known, including "Almost Like Being In Love," "The Sound of Music," "Too Close for Comfort" and "Diamond's Are a Girl's Best Friend." Previn really digs into the material (some of which is rarely played in a jazz setting), and, by adding swing and some subtle reharmonizations, turns the songs into straight-ahead jazz. ~ Scott Yanow
