This review is from: Encore At The Blue Note (Audio CD)
As always another excellent Oscar Peterson album. At the moment these four albums (which can be purchased as a boxed set) are the last recordings available before Peterson had a stroke. So on this 4th album in the series Oscar has his left hand at 100%.

What this means is that you are in for a treat. His biography title is called "The Will To Swing" and on this album Peterson does this brilliantly. My favourite track is the Charlie Parker classic "Billes Bounce", which whilst it is not at the race horse tempo you sometimes get with Peterson just builds and builds and of course swings.

Ray Brown is on Bass and Herb Ellis is on Guitar. This is the original Oscar Peterson Trio. They are augmented by Bobby Durham on drums to make up the quartet. This is very high class Jazz by some of the greatest ever in the history of the music.
