Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs: No Compression, No Compromise. Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs Offer True High-Resolution 24-bit/96kHz Audiophile Sound. Universal Music Group has gone back to the original master tapes to deliver fully uncompressed, high-resolution versions of many of your favorite albums on Blu-ray Pure Audio Disc. Mastered at 24bit/96kHz, Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs deliver the sound the artists originally heard in the studio when these classic albums were recorded. These discs provide all the recorded musical information. While convenient due to their small file size, today's heavily compressed music files do not represent the true fidelity of the original album. Recordings are transferred from the original master tapes and delivered in high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio. No compression is utilized, and the sound quality is vastly superior to MP3 or standard CD. Three separate choices of audio file format for playback: PCM 2.0, Dolby True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio (5.1 available where noted). Your preferred audio format is chosen either by pressing the "Audio" button on your Blu-ray remote or via your onscreen menu display.

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

For most of my life I've been a Rock music fan (and still am of Classic Rock), only recently discovering and appreciating Jazz, despite knowing of Oscar Peterson for decades. This is the second Peterson CD I've bought and my first response is "WOW!" Having been recorded in 1962, I was concerned it would be mono with poor sound quality. Quite the opposite. Thanks to digital remastering, the sound quality is fantastic, with only mild hissing. And most importantly for me, it's in full stereo...sounds like you've got a front-row seat, surrounded by the trio. And it sounds like it was recorded yesterday. The trio did a masterful job on all the songs. Bottom line: if you like Jazz, you can't but love this 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!

This is one of my most favourite jazz albums of all time. And this remastered version makes a perfect album even more perfect. With it's 6 bonus tracks, meticulous remastering and great packaging, this is a must-have for any jazz lover. Peterson truly is the best jazz pianist of all time, and this is one of his best recordings. The 12 page booklet includes photos of OP, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, as well as informative liner notes, including track-by-track notes. For me, the true highlight of this album is the wonderful "Hymn to Freedom" with its tremoloed, chorded climax that almost has you on your feet cheering. This album is much more than just a jazz album...it is a work of art.

The incredible genius of Oscar Peterson leaves one almost breathless. His imagination and creativity are without equal, in my estimation. Combined with the impeccable timing and unique style of drummer Eddie Thigpen, and the magical caress of the bass by Ray Brown, make this a truly incredible listening pleasure. Beginning with Night Train, and the interesting changes on the piano, along with the bass solo, one cannot help but be moved.You want to just sit and listen, but at the same time, you imagine yourself on the dance floor whirling to the strains of these remarkable musicians. With each tune, the mood changes, but always with appreciation and delight at such gifted men. This is one any music lover does not want to pass up.

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.

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.

"DO NOT buy this album. I'm still relatively new to vinyl but I'm learning quickly and amassing quite a good collection. From what I've learned, Wax Time records are not mastered from the original recordings, despite being sold as "audiophile" quality. They are mastered from CDs that are now in public domain. The quality is not good. I returned this LP because it sounded awful. It was full of static and the music sounded worse than when I listen to it on CD or my iPhone. The cost of this record in a record store is 20$; at 30$ this album is overpriced. Returning it is a pain. Buying this LP was a mistake. I wish I had waited and found it used, or at least purchased a repressing from a good, reputable label like Impex or Blue Note (hopefully someday)."
