I dare to fore-say that in about 50 years; Mr. Andre Prévin will have a status
as "one of the greatest of all times".
Why this view isn’t shared yet, is only explainable by our dear Lord himself...
Previn did some REMARKABLE Jazz-piano recordings at rather young age (1946-1950).
He was playing as the best Jazz-Pianists of the time!
Somewhat later on he started to write arrangements for all big names in music.
- many of these arrangements have a handwriting of something that could have
been George Gershwin... if he wouldn't be dead.
He also wrote some Film-Scores.
That he is a tremendous classical-musician as well, is for me secondary...
