I bought this CD a few weeks ago and it has scarcely left the turntable of my player. There is nothing exceptional about the tunes or arrangements - they are all standard jazz fare, but the playing of all the musicians is simply top notch. Every solo is packed with flowing ideas and you can feel the form of the solo, where it is going to, rather than a static series of licks joined together. I don't know the circumstances of this recording but it sounds as if the four musicians stopped off in a studio on the way to a gig and just had a good time, it was probably more planned than that. The sound quality is also excellent.

This is a Jazz album that everyone should have in their collection. The Oscar Peterson Trio is joined Milt Jackson and what a beautiful album they create together.

Recorded in 1961 the album starts with On Green Dolphin Street. This is mellow and laid back for a while and then changes gear to swing. Perhaps the most noticeable thing about this track is Peterson's very restrained and delicate Piano solo. Even when the solo reaches the swing section there aren't the torrents of notes that you might expect. This is Oscar Peterson showing a different facet to his great talent.

Of course part of the reason for Petersons restraint on the first track maybe because a couple of the other tracks are absolute barnstormers. In particular Work Song and Reunion Blues swing like hell. Milt Jackson plays with a fire that, to me, was sometimes missing from his work with the MJQ. Listen on these tracks for Ed Thigpens great drumming. He really hits some great accents when you really don't expect them - and they work! Combine his work with the relentless Ray Browns bass and you have a swinging backdrop that could make much lesser musicians sound good.

Sadly only Oscar Peterson survives from this marvellous quartet at the time of writing. This disc captures them all at the height of their abilities and is an essential purchase.
