Previn playing Duke is a perfect match. Both men were born in Europe, maintained successful careers in both the classical and jazz/pop music realms, and displayed a surprising feeling for the blues. Highlights of this first solo recording by Previn include “Taking a Chance on Love,” with its classical allusions; the funky slant on “I Like the Likes of You”; and the Oscar Peterson echoes in “April in Paris.”
