Product Description:

Oscar Peterson Trio: Oscar Peterson (piano); Ray Brown (bass); Ed Thigpen (drums).
Recorded at Radio Recorders, Hollywood, California on December 16, 1962.
Personnel: Oscar Peterson (piano); Ed Thigpen (drums).
Liner Note Author: Benny Green .
Recording information: Los Angeles, CA (12/16/1962).
Although the repertoire on this CD reissue by the Oscar Peterson Trio (with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen) is fairly typical (with such veteran standards as "C Jam Blues," "Bags' Groove," "Easy Does It" and "I Got It Bad"), Peterson and his sidemen sound fairly inspired. Actually the highpoints are the final two selections: Duke Ellington's "Band Call" and the original version of O.P.'s "Hymn to Freedom." This CD gives one a definitive look at the 1960s Oscar Peterson Trio. ~ Scott Yanow
