4 to Go! Review

by Scott Yanow

This out-of-print LP (when is Columbia going to start seriously reissuing their Andre Previn jazz dates on 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.
