Although the entire CD is great, there are two track that are among the best jazz recordings I have ever heard.<BR/><BR/>Satin Doll, a famous Duke Ellington song has been played for so long at weddings, 50th Anniversary parties etc., that it has almost become a cliche', but Peterson's piano solo through the middle of the track is sensational.<BR/><BR/>The medley of Perdido and Caravan are even better. The back and forth playing with guitarist Joe Pass in perdido is seemless - it often takes several bars before you realize there is a change in instrument, and Peterson's playing immediately following the segue into Caravan is astonishing. At times it is just impossible to believe that only a single pianist is playong here.<BR/><BR/>The CD is highly recommended for Oscar Peterson fans and Jazz Piano lovers alike.
