Pianist Oscar Peterson recorded so many albums for Pablo during 1972-83 that it must have been rather difficult for him to come up with fresh material and ideas for records. However this CD, which features songs associated with nine of his associates (ranging from Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday to Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Lester Young) features a variety of tunes that Peterson had not played that much through the years. With the assistance of guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Martin Drew, Peterson sounds inspired on such themes as "Blueberry Hill," "Stuffy," "Cottontail" and even "A Tisket, a Tasket."
Oscar really kicks!! Birk's Work's is awesome! And then with some Joe Pass in there -- you can't beat it. Swings and Bops.
