5.0 out of 5 stars Just marvelous!, 17 Sep 2012
I bought this after listening to the NPR podcasts on Jazz legends, and I must say I have since been listening to this with increasing joy. I'm not somebody who can comment on the value of this recording in Jazz history but I truely enjoy the interaction between the different members of the trio, especially between Peterson and Ellis.

Definitely one of the best jazz record I have in my collection.
