Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The Oscar Peterson Trio, with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown, is the primary focus of this live set from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival. Peterson, with his usual strong chops on piano, starts with a flourish with a furious take of "Will You Still Be Mine," followed by a warm tribute to trumpeter Clifford Brown who had died in a car wreck at the age of 25 only the previous year in the form of a somewhat laid-back interpretation of Brown's already popular "Joy Spring."
