This is the first DVD, in colour, you can buy of an Oscar Peterson Trio with bass and drums. It is magnificent in every way. Neils Pederson is on Bass and Martin Drew is on drums.
Filmed in 1985, Oscar's playing was still as near his best ever as makes no difference and this means that you are in for a treat. The set list is:
A Salute to Bach (as it was 300 years since his birth in 1985)
Who can I turn To
Yours is my heart alone
Falling In Love with La Belle Province
Skylark-My Foolish Heart
Fans will know that some of these are virtuoso showstoppers. Blues Etude, Yours is my Heart Alone and Caravan perhaps being the most obvious. However Oscar was always more than just a great technician and there is some superb thoughtful playing on this disc as well.
I bought my DVD from the US where it came out a few weeks earlier (and it is region 0). The picture is 4:3 ratio and the sound has 5.1 DD as well as DTS. The running time is 80mins. I saw Oscar Peterson live in 1987 and he didn't play much longer than that then, so you are probably getting his entire show here. I can't recommend it highly enough!
