Album Review

Although the music on this CD was originally said to be recorded in Europe, it actually comes from a Chicago concert, and the five additional selections (last issued on an LP shared with the Modern Jazz Quartet), supposedly performed in Chicago, are from an appearance in Los Angeles. But despite the geographical mixups, the music is consistently brilliant and often wondrous. The trio of Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown had been together for over four years, and these would be among the threesome's last (and finest) recordings. The very tricky arrangements sandwiched remarkable solos, with pianist Peterson sounding especially inspired. Together with the Stratford Shakespearean CD of the previous year, this set features the trio at the peak of its powers. Highlights include "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Budo," "Daahoud," "Indiana," and "Joy Spring."

Oh..MAN are these guys good!

Just play it, and you'll be laughing with joy. These guys just P L A Y !!! Peace.

So good I gave it five stars... twice.

Wow. This is one of my favorites. A rare treat is Peterson with a guitar trio. A always love a jazz trio album minus the drums, and this album shows why. Just an insane pace throughout. Only downside is Oscar's singing in the background, which he thankfully toned down as he progressed. Nevertheless, this remains one of his best. If not his best. He just kills in a live setting, and Herb Ellis tears it apart as well.

Oscar Peterson was one of the greatest piano players of all time. A pianist with phenomenal technique on the level of his idol, Art Tatum, Peterson's speed, dexterity, and ability to swing at any tempo were amazing. Very effective in small groups, jam sessions, and in accompanying singers, O.P. was at his absolute best when performing unaccompanied solos. His original style did not fall into any specific idiom. Like Erroll Garner and George Shearing, Peterson's distinctive playing formed during the...
