Just In Time: Andre Previn


Andre Previn died this month. I only knew of him as a composer and conductor of music for film, but he was also a very fine jazz pianist as this performance of “Just in Time” from the Broadway show Bells are Ringing, written by Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Jule Styne, attests.

Just In Time: Tony Bennett and Pacifica


Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote the lyrics, and Jule Styne the music, for the Broadway show Bells Are Ringing. Tony Bennett does a great version of the song.

And well done, listener-sponsored radio network Pacifica, which yesterday turned in a smashing record-breaking one-day fundraiser total, just in time.
