Product Description


Un album du pianiste canadien Oscar Peterson, considéré comme l'un de ses chefs-d'oeuvre. On le retrouve dans sa formule fétiche du trio (en compagnie du batteur Ed Thigpen qui a succédé au guitariste Herb Ellis en 1958 et de son contrebassiste Ray Brown) pour une série de compositions aérées et acérées dans lesquelles s'intercalent d'heureuses reprises de Duke Ellington ou Count Basie. Peterson est leader et cela s'entend : l'architecture des compositions tourne autour des parties dynamiques de son jeu, caractérisé par un "swing" irrésistible. On lui a parfois reproché quelques "clichés" convenus dans sa pratique, mettant plus en oeuvre un sens du "drive" qu'une sensibilité réelle. Ses détracteurs doivent malgré tout convenir que Peterson menait son exécution avec une précision d'attaque et articulation proprement ahurissantes. Quant à la sensibilité, elle est ici réelle et palpable : le pianiste misait son jeu autant sur les harmonies que sur les mélodies. --Eric Frank

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Oscar Peterson Proverbial Desert Island CD! June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well, this is it! If I could only have ONE of the dozens of Oscar Peterson CDs to play on the proverbial desert island, THIS would be the one! Recorded in 1962.....post-Herb Ellis (guitar) era; Ed Thigpen (drum) era. So much pleasure, of course, to be heard from BOTH eras!....but this one tops 'em all for me. THE definitive versions (by any swinger!) of Georgia on My Mind, Moten Swing, Easy Does It, Things Ain't What They Used to Be, I Got It Bad (and That Ain't Good), and two I wasn't familiar with which I fell in love with: Band Call, and Hymn to Freedom. The chordal progressions alone are ear candy, and if your heart doesn't respond, call 911 ASAP!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the best Feb. 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Unlike many jazz piano lovers, I have never thought Oscar Peterson was showing off or playing too many notes, though I also love Count Basie, whose sparse playing goes in the opposite direction.
This album is wonderfully appealing and, could be a great place to start with Oscar if you aren't yet acquainted with his music.
I love every track [but only have the original CD], and appreciate the variety on the recording, from C Jam Blueswith its distinctive percussion and piano and double bass solos, to slow ballads like Hymn To Freedom and Things Ain't What They Used To Be through rollicking songs like Night Train and Moten Swing.
Another terrific album is Tracks, which is one of few solo recordings.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good pressing March 18 2014
Format:LP Record
You will notice that is a Wax Time issue (not Verve). And you might be aware that some people have provided negative comments regarding the pressing and sound quality. But these comments are not true, the surface is dead quiet, the sound is good, albeit a little drier than the original Verve. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peterson's Best Trio Jan. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although Oscar Peterson has never failed to find the most astute accompanists, the trio of Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on double bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums rank supreme. A perfect balance of swing and bebop. The CD's standouts are the brief, but throbbing swing-cum-rag "The Honeydripper" and the rarely improvised (and previously unreleased) Cole Porter classic "My Heart Belongs To Daddy" which variates between a Bossa Nova and Swing arrangement. A must have for any Peterson fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own for Any Jazz Collection June 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have been a jazz fan since i was a kid in the 70's. One of the wonderful things about jazz music for me is finding out about artists like pianist Oscar Peterson. He is considered - by many fans and musicians alike - one of the finest players ever, with an amaaaazzzzing sense of time. Oscar's music is accessible and can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys lively piano music with fun and interesting time signatures. This was my first purchase of his music, having heard him on jazz radio many times. In the trio (acoustic piano, bass, drums) format, as was most of Oscar's work, this collection of tunes is a tribute to the artist's father, who worked for canadian pacific railways in canada. This is not to say the music is somber; rather, it is full of life. Great anytime listening music!

5.0 out of 5 stars All Time Great Jazz Album April 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
It's a pretty safe bet that if you put on pretty much any Oscar Peterson album you're going to have a good time. "Night Train" is probably his best known (and most accessible) album and it's easy to see why.
Even if you aren't a jazz fan (or if you are looking to get into jazz) you should enjoy this. It's hard not to. It really swings. I would defy anybody not to be tapping along pretty much the minute "Happy Go Lucky Local" kicks in. The whe whole album has a great bluesy feel to it. You also get a number of extra tracks on the end of the album, none of which are up to the standards of the original cuts (which themselves set a very high standard to live up to) but which are interesting and add value to the package. It's also an excellent showcase for Peterson's piano-bass-drum trio, with Ed Thigpen on drums replacing Herb Ellis's guitar.

This is a classic jazz album in its own right. It's also a great jazz album for people who don't like jazz. Just get it.
