Reseña de álbum

This CD evidently originates from a fan's home taping of a European radio broadcast of a concert by the Oscar Peterson Trio in Vienna on November 9, 1968. An announcer is briefly heard over the introduction but, other than that, the only flaws occur as the recording level is occasionally overmodulated, resulting in some distortion (but not so much that it is unlistenable). In spite of the sound problems, the pianist is in top form, joined by bassist Sam Jones and drummer Bobby Durham, for a set that relies mainly on some of Peterson's favorite standards ("The Lamp Is Low" and "Someday My Prince Will Come") as well as Neal Hefti's "Little Darlin'," Bill Evans' "Waltz for Debby," and the leader's "Never Say Yes" and "Noreen's Nocturne." Compared to the immense quantity of commercial releases available by Oscar Peterson, especially live albums, this one can't be considered essential, but completists won't be disappointed with the consistently outstanding performances on this 71-minute CD.
