Jesus Christ Superstar: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album

One of the most versatile musicians on the planet, André Previn has amassed considerable credentials as a jazz pianist, despite carving out separate lives first as a Hollywood arranger and composer, and then as a world-class classical conductor, pianist, and composer. Always fluid, melodic, and swinging, with elements of Bud Powell, Oscar Peterson, and Horace Silver mixed with a faultless technique, Previn didn't change much over the decades but could always be counted upon for polished, reliable performances at the drop of a hat.

He started piano lessons in his native Berlin before the Nazi threat forced his family to move to Paris in 1938 and the U.S. the following year. Settling in Los Angeles, the wunderkind Previn began working as a jazz pianist, an arranger for MGM, and a recording artist for Sunset Records while still in high school -- and by his 18th year, his first recordings for RCA Victor had racked up substantial sales. Originally swing-oriented, Previn discovered bop in 1950 just before his induction into the Army. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Previn went into overdrive, gigging as a jazz pianist, scoring films, and playing chamber music. Forming a smooth boppish trio with Shelly Manne and Leroy Vinnegar, Previn scored a huge crossover hit with an album of jazz interpretations of My Fair Lady, which in turn led to a series of likeminded albums of Broadway scores and kicked off an industry trend.

By 1962, Previn started to make the transition away from Hollywood toward becoming a full-time classical conductor, dropping his jazz activities entirely. He stayed away from jazz for 27 years, with the exceptions of a handful of sessions with Ella Fitzgerald and classical violinist/dabbler Itzhak Perlman. Indeed, in 1984, he was quoted as saying that jazz was "an expendable art form" for him. But in March 1989, shortly before resigning from the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a dispute with management, Previn returned to jazz with a trio album for Telarc with Ray Brown and Joe Pass, showing that he had not lost an iota of his abilities. Subsequently, he returned frequently to the studio as a jazz pianist for Telarc, Angel, Deutsche Grammophon, and DRG when not freelancing as a conductor or composing classical scores. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

Why is Andre Previn profiled here? To my knowledge he has no relevant connection.

For anyone who says Ted Neeley isn't the best performer when it comes to Jesus is insane. You tell me who can do that good pushing the age of 60. I seen this live three times all because of Neeley.

For the simple fact that seeing Deep Purple in concert (many years ago) they did excerpts from the sound track JCST- myself and maybe a few others out of 15,000 got it!!! Thank the heavens for Ian Gillian.- Great move- Great soundtrack!! !

the movie soundtrack knocks it out of the park- fully fleshed out and realized. I think the only Broadway track that surpasses is Herod's song

Ted Neeleys version of Gethsemane keeps me comming back. This is one heck of an opera, but that song and as sung on film/origina l cast; perfect, timeless.

I always have a difficult time comparing different adaptations of this musical. I've found that every version has its own vision and sound, so I end up appreciating each version for what it is (unless there's something I obviously dislike, such as a terrible vocalist).

this album sooo old but it's good.

Listen to the original album rather than the motion picture soundtrack. Ian Gillan (Deep Purple)as Jesus and the others blow these stiffs away.

What awesome memories I have. My generation rules! You just can't duplicate the best, nor can you easily describe it to those who weren't there. I do miss it from time to time. I am forever grateful.
