Product Description:

Personnel: Count Basie, Oscar Peterson (piano); John Heard (bass); Louis Bellson (drums).
Recorded at Group IV Recording Studios, Hollywood, California on February 21, 1978. Includes original liner notes by Benny Green.
Digitally remastered by George Horn (1986, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
Count Basie was in his mid 70s when he went into the studio to record these eight performances with another famous pianist, Oscar Peterson. These two artists work well together in an atmosphere of intimacy. Although their styles are different, their masterful abilities contrast and compliment each other in a satisfying way.
Basie's manner of piano playing is succinct, sticking to and exploiting the melody with an exquisite economy. Paraphrasing the songs with emphasis in all the right places, he whittles the tune into a more profound version of itself. Peterson's playing is busier, with a sense of exploration. His lyrical work is especially distinctive on the electric keyboard in "After You've Gone." Basie's work on this number is just as affecting, his short, repeating flourishes of notes create pleasing patterns.
