From the start of his intermittent side career as a jazz pianist, esteemed conductor and composer Andre Previn has shown more feeling for the form than most classical artists who cross over. Going beyond a recreational involvement in improvised music, he has deepened his playing since skimming stylistic surfaces on his bestselling My Fair Lady album of nearly 50 years ago. Now 78, he gives us what may be his most satisfying jazz recording in Alone: Ballads for Solo Piano. The solo format allows him to reflect his debt to piano masters including Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, and Bud Powell in ways his work with trios and combos hasn't, while showing off his super-refined lyrical touch with its sophisticated sense of color.

Pianist Denny Zeitlin has the distinction—among many others—of having written one of the loveliest of loves songs: "Love Theme From Invasion of the Bodysnatchers." The tune can be heard in its unadorned beauty on Zeitlin's Precipice (Sunnyside Records, 2010), the recording of an extraordinarily beautiful and adventurous solo concert. The original version of the tune, from the soundtrack of the 1978 movie, Invasion of the Bodysnatchers (1978)—a masterful remake of the classic 1954 science fiction film—was Zeitlin's lone effort at writing for film. Hired originally to do a "jazz" score, Zeitlin found it necessary—when plans changed—to convince the powers-that-be that he was indeed capable of writing music for symphony orchestra and electronics—the then-new-on-the scene synthesizers.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. A set of folk songs, but handled in a way that isn't folksy at all – thanks to the lyrical genius of Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu! The music here has sources in older tunes from Catalonia – as you'd guess from the title – but Tete's handling of the material is all jazz, all the way through – with a rich amount of solo introspection that really moves the tunes past their simple melodies, in ways that are even more expansive than some of the Scandinavian 60s experiments with folk and jazz! The album's also perhaps one of Montoliu's best-remembered of the 70s – a date that circulated strongly, thanks to Tete's incomparable solo performance throughout – very expressive, but never overdone.
