"This reissue delivers on so many levels, and is in every way better than my original 1960s-era vinyl pressing. The LP was mastered in stereo from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Quality Record Pressings (QRP). The list price is $38.98, and it’s worth every penny." —  Music = 9/11; Sound = 10/11 — Mark Smotroff, Analog Planet, Aug. 5, 2022. Read the entire review here.

When Jim Davis started producing records at Verve, he changed the company's recording philosophy toward its most prolific instrumentalist. Where Norman Granz had produced countless Oscar Peterson albums dedicated to the popular song, Davis was more interested in making albums closer to how the Peterson trio sounded live.

By then the Peterson trio with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen had been together for five years and performed like a well-oiled machine. Listeners here are treated to mostly pop songs of the day, including bossa nova tunes and film themes, and the treatments are fairly brief, with emphasis placed squarely on the melodies.

Originally released in 1964.

I was expecting this to sound good, but was not prepared that it would sound THIS good.

I have owned previous editions of this Oscar Peterson classic but nothing quite prepared me for the absolute crispness and "live feel" of this version. Ray Brown's bass is especially warm and vibrant throughout. Once I dropped the needle in the groove and savoured the anticipation of the first notes of "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars", it really did sound like one of the greatest ever piano trios were playing an intimate club gig in my living room in Dublin. Peterson's piano is pitch perfect while Ed Thigpen's cymbals sing with a clarity that I've rarely heard on vinyl before. Bravo Chas and all at Analogue Productions!
