The CHRONOLOGICAL series on the French Classics label are seldom disappointing. Meticulously selected and sequenced, with fine sound and accompanying notes, they are a true treat for any jazz lover. The Oscar Peterson Classics disc 1952-1953 compiles the great pianist's work from those years, spotlighting the artist's singing, which bears some stylistic resemblance to his deft, elegant work on the keys. At 21 tracks, and with songbook favorites such as "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "How Deep Is the Ocean," and "Autumn in New York," it's hard to go wrong with this set.
