Overview

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. The trio (his regular group of the late '50s) was augmented by Peterson's late-'60s drummer Bobby Durham for spirited performances. Rather than using their complex arrangements of the past, the pianist and his alumni simply jammed through the performances and the results are quite rewarding. 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 series show, the magic was still there.

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.
