Duet was a collaborative album by Doris Day and the André Previn trio, with songs arranged by Previn. The album was issued by Columbia Records (8552) in both monaural (catalog number CL-1752) and stereophonic (catalog number CS-8552) versions on February 22, 1962. Doris Day selected the songs. Close Your Eyes" (Bernice Petkere) – 3:14. Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread)" (Rube Bloom, Johnny Mercer) – 3:55. Yes" (André Previn, Dory Langdon Previn) – 3:28.

Previn's more recent work also shows the influence of Bill Evans. Previn has recorded solo classical piano compositions by Mozart, Gershwin, Poulenc, Shostakovich, an album for RCA Victor with violinist Erick Friedman of the Franck and Debussy violin sonatas, and many chamber works for piano. In 1967, Previn succeeded Sir John Barbirolli as music director of the Houston Symphony Orchestra. In 1968, he began his tenure as principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), serving in that post until 1979

André Previn is as revered as a jazz pianist as he is in the classical world as a conductor and composer. In this clip he shows us just what he can do at the keyboard, alongside jazz legend Oscar Peterson. In the clip, Previn says: The last time I played in 4/4 was 12 years ago, before asking to join Oscar at the piano, saying: Humour me. Play something with me, anything. At one point, Previn sits back and lets Oscar Peterson take the reins with a solo, before Peterson does the same and Previn takes the limelight with an elaborate and chromatic improvisation. They hug it out at the end: a bromance for the ages.
