Well here they are again! relentless bass player Ray Brown, on the guitar Mundell Love - Jazz veterans and "routiniers" - featuring El Maestro El Grande André Prévin mostly known for his classical expertise not only as a conductor but also as a pianist knocking off some fingers busting works such as Prokofiev's Cello Sonata! Some folks do not know about his love for Jazz! He actually did initially 3 albums of the same kind cutting the first one in the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena California (after a long recording Jazz break Previn said himself "he took his best insurance policy with Joe Pass and Ray Brown on his side back in 1989 (Telarc CD 83302) the second one is with - Pass did unfortunately passed away - Mundell Lowe (Telarc CD 83303) and some sort of an original recorded at the "Summerfest: La Jolia" in San Diego back in 1991 (Telarc CD 83309). Mundell Lowe, Ray Brown and André Prévin are three outstanding musicians and nobody could add or improve on that particularly statement, having done it all! and doing it again better and better all the time! ~A customer review from ama.zon.
