Twilight Music: Andre Previn, “I’m A Dreamer, Aren’t We All?” (1963)

I hate that term “easy listening.” It’s so condescending and snobby. So much great music gets dismissed simply because it’s easy on the ears. So even though I hate it, I can’t think of a better, more accurate term for some of the music it is used to describe. Case in point: pianist Andre Previn was a master of the genre, and this lushly arranged version of the 1929 musical number “I’m A Dreamer, Aren’t We All?” is a prime example of the master at work.
