composed by Harold Arlen, 1905-1986; performed by André Previn, 1929-2019 (Contemporary, 1994), 45 mins, 10 page(s)
This solo piano set from Andre Previn is a bit unusual for he recasts ten Harold Arlen compositions (all but "For Every Man There's a Woman" and "Cocoanut Sweet" are quite well-known) by reharmonizing the chords and modernizing the melodies. most of the songs are taken at slow tempoes and the set (which has been r...

Over The Rainbow

composed by Harold Arlen, 1905-1986 and E. Y. Harburg, 1896-1981; performed by Art Tatum, 1909-1956; in 20th Century Piano Genius (Verve Records, 1996), 3 mins
This double album was taped at a private party in 1956, featuring the amazing Art Tatum on solo piano. Tatum, who died the following year, never did decline, and he is in prime form throughout this highly enjoyable and frequently exciting set of standards. There are no real romps a la "Tiger Rag" but the 27 perfor...

composed by Harold Arlen, 1905-1986 and Johnny Mercer, 1909-1976; performed by Al Jarreau, 1940-2017; in Accentuate The Positive (Verve Records, 2004), 4 mins
Although centered around songs from the 1940s, Al Jarreau's Accentuate the Positive is another stellar modern jazz album that continues the winning streak he began with his 2000 comeback, Tomorrow Today. Similar to his previous effort, the R&B-infused All I Got, the album features classy production from Tommy LiPu...

Now I Know

composed by Harold Arlen, 1905-1986 and Ted Koehler, 1894-1973; performed by Frank D'Rone, Billy May's Orchestra; in After The Ball (Verve Records, 2003), 2 mins
Though Frank D'Rone must have appreciated the critical comparisons to Frank Sinatra, his 1960 Mercury LP After the Ball sounds more like the work of Bobby Darin, the deep crooner with the angelic face then making waves with his nightclub act and live record, Darin at the Copa. D'Rone, a former guitarist, also bear...

composed by Harold Arlen, 1905-1986 and E. Y. Harburg, 1896-1981; performed by Lorez Alexandria; in Alexandria The Great (Impulse! Records, 2004), 4 mins
Lorez Alexandria has not received her due as a jazz singer, probably due in part to her long layoff from recording (11 years) for nationally distributed labels following these 1964 studio sessions for Impulse! But the vocalist is in top form throughout each of these three sessions, each with a different group of m...
