Oscar Peterson and his trio (with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen) explore ten of the stronger themes from George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess on this CD reissue. It is true that Peterson's version of "Summertime" will not make one forget the classic rendition by Miles Davis with Gil Evans but, as is true with all of these performances, Peterson makes the melodies sound like his own. "It Ain't Necessarily So" and "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin"' are among the more memorable selections.

1. I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'
2. I Wants To Stay Here
3. Summertime
4. Oh Dey's So Fresh And Fine (Strawberry Woman)
5. Oh, Lawd, I'm On My Way
6. It Ain't Necessarily So
7. There's A Boat Dat's Leaving Soon For New York
8. Oh Bess, Where's My Bess?
9. Here Come De Honey Man
10. Bess You Is My Woman Now
