André Previn's ten records for Contemporary during 1957-1960 were among the finest jazz recordings of his career. Several of the albums were jazz interpretations of scores from Broadway shows although, ironically, the best-known one, My Fair Lady, came out under drummer Shelly Manne's name. For this particular CD...

Barney Kessel's Swingin' Party at Contemporary

performed by Barney Kessel, 1923-2004, Marvin L. Jenkins, 1932-2005, Gary Peacock, 1935- and Ron Lundberg (Contemporary, 2002), 43 mins, 6 page(s)
In 1960, a title like Barney Kessel's Swingin' Party at Contemporary must have sounded more like popular slang than a style of jazz. And indeed, the double meaning was intentional: this live effort was recorded at a swinging record label party at Contemporary and the music performed by guitarist Barney Kessel is d...

Assisted by bassist John Heard and drummer Ralph Penland on four of the six tracks, pianist George Cables explores six very familiar George Gershwin compositions. The fact that he was able to come up with fresh statements on these warhorses (and still stay melodic) says a great deal about Cables's inventiveness. ~...
