5.0 out of 5 stars The Piano Titan 14 Mar 2007
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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
Blues Etude
Yours is my heart alone
Falling In Love with La Belle Province
Nigerian Marketplace
Cakewalk
Skylark-My Foolish Heart
Perdido
Caravan

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous trio jazz 9 April 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This whole DVD is a joy! Even though you may think, as I do, that the "real" original Oscar Peterson Trio consists of OP, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen this recording is no less great - on the contrary.
Oscar Peterson's immense drive backed by Martin Drew's fine drumming and rhythm and NHOP's equilibristic swinging bassplaying form a synthesis. Just listen to and enjoy NHOP's playing on "Nigerian marketplace".
This is a 5 star + recording - do yourself a favour and buy it.
