Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes! Only 2,500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!

Oscar Peterson has thoroughly assimilated not just every piano style that preceded him but every ensemble idiom as well: swinging big bands, gospel, European classical, and, of course, the blues. Having mastered all of this Peterson found the standard piano trio the perfect vehicle for exploring all of these types of music. In this classic LP, the crowning achievement in his greatest year, Peterson doesn't just explore these styles - he conquers them.

Great music ... but where's Ray Brown?

I am a big fan of Oscar Peterson; with this one, I thought I was getting an Oscar Peterson Trio recording, but I think this vinyl reissue should have been credited to the Oscar Peterson Duo, since the bass is so buried in the mix that it's almost as if they forgot to activate Ray Brown's channel! I could finally hear him properly on increasing the volume to high levels, and even then, there was not much lower end and body to the bass, though the woody character and plucking came through a lot clearer. What is peculiar is that it does get better as you progress through the record, being worst on Side A of the first disc. After listening to that side, I actually immediately put on another record to make sure that there was nothing wrong with my equipment or my hearing! I guess I should have paid more attention to two of the previous reviews that mentioned poor recording quality. Very disappointing in terms of sound quality, especially for an expensive reissue.

Great album but....

I love the music but in my opinion the sound quality isn't up there with my Analogue Productions and Music Matters 45 rpm albums.

Very nice
