By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Mar. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a long standing Oscar Peterson fan I have bought dozens of his albums over the years. However this was an album that I didn't really feel I needed to own until by chance when reading a review of it, I found out that it was recorded at the same series of concerts from which "The Trio" album came. That is one of the best Oscar Peterson albums ever.

So what you get is Oscar Peterson with Joe Pass and Neils Pederson in 1973 recorded live. The album starts with Peterson's own composition 'Wheatland'. After a 4 minute Piano solo introduction, in which Peterson also plays his own 'Hogtown Blues', Pass and Pederson join in to suppport a classic Peterson solo. Pass then has a short solo after which Peterson blows again before sequeing back to the tune. By the time you reach the end of this tune you realise that you are hearing one of the finest Jazz Trios ever. Peterson in this era was at the absolute zenith of his playing skills, and this trio demonstrates that better than anything except perhaps when he played solo (get "Tracks" to hear this).

The album lists track 3 as "For Count" but Benny Green's sleeve notes refer to "Miles". Whichever is the correct title this is the only blues on the album. However its an absolute belter of a track with sublime playing from all 3 musicians.

If possible I would have given this album 4.5 stars because it isn't quite as good as "The Trio" IMO, but its growing on me fast, and such is the quality of the playing that I had no choice but to give it 5 stars.

Highly recommended.
