The title says it all. Round midnight. Perfect time to play it. Winding down after a hectic day, background to a dinner party, seduction with the lights low. Or just gazing into the fire with a single malt. Perfect.
Oscar plays it cool throughout both as a trio and a quartet, accompanied by top flight musicians. Guitarists Herb Ellis/ Barney Kessler and a link between the trios of 'King Cole' and Oscar Peterson, Irving Ashby. Ed Thigpen the brush virtuoso and on two tracks the vibraphone of Milt Jackson. Throughout the CD the discrete bass of Ray Brown provides a subtle heartbeat. Recommended.
However; ignore the cover shown on Amazon which shows Lester Young. He is NOT on the CD. The cover you will receive is without Lester Young on the front.
