Andre Previn: a master composer playing jazz

Mostly known nowadays for his conducting, back in the 1950's Andre Previn had quite a number of smash hit jazz albums.

Listening to his solo playing on "Andre Previn Plays Songs by Jerome Kern" you can hear that he has an incredibly sophisticated sense of harmony and also posseses the technique to apply these ideas to the songs in real time.

A near perfect blend of the classical and jazz mind.
