AllMusic Review

Don’t hate him because he’s popular…or because of his sundry talents. Andre Previn may be best known as a conductor of symphony orchestras and as a film soundtrack composer, but he’s a well-established jazz pianist as well. Previn’s style is melodious and easygoing (influenced by piano masters Bud Powell and Oscar Peterson), but he can swing up a storm when he wants to.

On ALONE, however, the mood is decidedly relaxed and touched with nostalgia as Previn embraces a set of emotionally charged standards. Songs like “Angel Eyes” and “I Can’t Get Started” are timelessly poetic, while the sly “Andre’s Blues” displays Previn’s lighthearted side.
