Personnel: Oscar Peterson (piano); Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen (bass); Terry Clark (drums).
Recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland on July 16, 1981. Includes liner notes by Norman Granz.
For this trio set with bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Terry Clarke, the great pianist Oscar Peterson (appearing at the 1981 Montreux Jazz Festival) performs a medley of "Misty" and "Waltz for Debby," three standards, his own "Cakewalk" and the debut of "Nigerian Marketplace," the first section of an extended suite not yet completed at the time. This is a well-rounded set (reissued on CD) that finds the remarkable Oscar Peterson in typically swinging and prime form. ~ Scott Yanow
