All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Pianist Oscar Peterson had a reunion with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown at a well-publicized get-together at New York's Blue Note in March 1990.

On the first of four CDs released by Telarc, the quartet performs "Honeysuckle Rose," a ballad medley, three of the pianist's originals and "Sweet Georgia Brown." As this and the other CDs in the ...

    Oscar and Co. Really Cook!

    Oscar Peterson has been a fixture on the jazz scene for many years. This album is a good example of him in a piano-guitar-drums trio format in which all personnel shine together as well as solo. It's a live recording, which adds to the excitement. Check out ''Blues for Big Scotia'' and the ''I Remember You'' triology to get a flavor. This one is a winner.
