Buddy DeFranco & Oscar PetersonGeorge Gershwin Songbook ... LP
Verve, 1954. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Classic mid 50s jazz takes on Gershwin! As the title indicates, the session features Buddy DeFranco and Oscar Peterson – but the real guy we wanna thank here is arranger Russ Garcia! Unlike some of the other Verve "soloist with the Peterson Trio" albums of the 50s, this one is more of a shared effort that has Buddy and Oscar both acting as soloists over larger backings directed by Garcia. Russ takes a lot of cues from Ralph Burns on the session – and like Burns on earlier Verve recordings, he sets things up so that the orchestrations never overwhelm the players – and instead simply augment their moods and shade in the colors of the tunes. We especially like Peterson in this format – as he was so often recorded heavily in trio format – but DeFranco is great too, snaking out over the top of the strings with a lean and angular tone on clarinet. Players include Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Bobby White, augmented by wind & strings. Titles include "S Wonderful", "Strike Up The Band", "I Wants To Stay Here", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "I Was Doing All Right", "I Got Rhythm", "The Man I Love", and "It Ain't Necessarily So".

Freddie Hubbard & Oscar PetersonFace To Face ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1982. Used ... $7.99
Freddie Hubbard's very much in a back-to-basics mode at this point in his career – and what better place to go back to basics than at the Pablo label, where Freddie's working in an acoustic mode with the Oscar Peterson combo! The style is a far cry from Hubbard's electric records of the 70s – but the tunes still have a nicely spacious feel that shows lessons learned at CTI – a style that makes Peterson sound a bit hipper than usual, and which definitely has Freddie as the boss of the set. Other players include Joe Pass on guitar, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Martin Drew on drums – and tracks include "All Blues", "Thermo", "Weaver Of Dreams", "Portrait Of Jenny", and "Tippin".

MPS (Japan), 1968. Used ... $19.99
The first of a series of great "private" recordings that Oscar Peterson did for the MPS label in the late 60s – sessions done at the home of label owner Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, in a laidback and easygoing style that's different than some of his American work of the time! The group on the set features Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, and the tunes open up nicely on some of the album's longer takes. Titles include "Easy Walker", "Tin Tin Daeo", "Like Someone In Love", and "Foggy Day". CD

Verve, 1960. Very Good ... $4.99
A refreshingly new set of tunes for Oscar Peterson to work his magic on – titles pulled from the musical Fiorello, a big hit at the time of recording, but virtually forgotten now! As usual, Peterson makes more with the tunes than might ever have been there in the first place – but it's the way that he does so that makes the album so great – and it's certainly a treat to hear some unfamiliar backdrops to allow him to take off on keys. Titles include "Little Tin Box", "Gentleman Jimmy", "Unfair", "On The Side Of The Angels", "Where Do I Go From Here", and "Politics & Poker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oscar PetersonIn A Mellow Mood (Exclusively For My Friends Vol 5 – Mellow Mood/Vol 3 – Way I Really Play) ... LP
MPS, 1968. Very Good+ 2LP ... $3.99
A pair of Oscar Peterson sessions for MPS – volumes 3 and 5 of the For My Friends series! First up is volume 5, Mellow Mood. The great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson shined so brightly in the late 60s era, found such a loose, beautiful outlet for his more relaxed, but still quite driving late night magic at MPS with producer Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer – none if more amazing than this 1968 trio session with Sam Jones languid, thumping bass and Bob Durham backend on the drums. It was cut in Brunner-Schwer's home, and the whole thing is such a beautiful counterpoint to the rollicking swing and bop sides Peterson cut on so many records for Verve. Includes "In A Mellotone", "Nica's Dream", "Green Dolphin Street", "Sax No End", "EMily" and "Who Can I Turn To". Next is Vol 3, The Way I Really Play – a well-titled set, in that it's got Oscar's piano in a fairly loose, soulfully relaxed setting with Sam Jones on bass and Bob Durham on drums. The album was recorded by MPS wizard Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in his own home – and it's an excellent example of the label's scene at its most relaxed mode. Tracks are longish, but never too self-indulgently so – and titles include "Waltzing Is Hip", "Satin Doll", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Sandy's Blues", "Alice In Wonderland", and "Noreen's Nocturne".

Oscar PetersonJazz Portrait Of Frank Sinatra ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $3.99
Oscar pays tribute to Frank – but he uses his keys, not his voice – to come up with some great renditions of tunes from Sinatra's classic Capitol years! It's true that Peterson was known to vocalize on some sessions (most notably on his tribute to Nat King Cole, recorded a few years later) – but this album is straight trio grooving, with Peterson skipping soulfully over the keys of the piano, abetted by Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – in a wonderfully-crafted set of tunes that includes "Witchcraft", "Come Dance With Me", "You Make Me Feel So Young", "All Of Me", "It Happened In Monterey", and "The Tender Trap".

A great live document of the Oscar Peterson trio at the start of the 60s – that trio that provided a second chapter to the pianist's career, as he moved away from working with a guitar, and instead embraced the role of drums in the trio! The drums, though, are handled here in a very different way than usual – with the amazing Ed Thigpen on the kit, open to many sounds and ideas as he swings things along with bassist Ray Brown – really providing a richly creative setting as Oscar stretches out on piano – on titles that include "Moanin", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "I Remember Clifford", "My Heart Stood Still", "Where Do I Go From Here", and "Band Call".

Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (France), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
A set of rare live material from legendary pianist Oscar Peterson – recorded in Paris during a time when his star was really rising on the global scene! The tracks were recorded for French radio, at the Olympia Theater in the city – and the package features the famous trio with Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! For fans of the important Thigpen years – which most folks know from the early 60s Verve Recordings – this extra material is a dream come true – especially as the set is from a time when the trio was in top form. Many tracks are quite long – in territory similar to the Live In Chicago recordings by the group – and titles include "Cubano Chant", "Whisper Not", "The Lamp Is Low", "Jet Song", "Tin Tin Deo", and "Yours Is My Heart Alone".

MPS, 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Pure genius from Oscar Peterson – one of his finest moments ever! The record is very different than most of Oscar's over-recorded trio format ones – and features Claus Ogerman crafting some impeccable backings of lofty strings and compressed horns, creating a pillow of air that takes Oscar's piano to the sky and beyond, floating into realms never dreamed of on other LPs! The set sparkles with a strident MPS easy groove – completely sublime, with a perfectness that we'd ascribe to a rare few albums, such as the similar-grooving Jobim album Wave, also helped out tremendously by Ogerman. Titles include "Dreamsville", "Sally's Tomato", "Sunny", "Wave", "Wandering", and "Ode To Billy Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Pablo, 1981. Near Mint- ... $13.99
An evocative title, and one that really sets the stage for the great sound of the record – an Oscar Peterson album that's a bit more open and flowing than usual – with some great long tracks, and a mighty soulful sound throughout! The title track is a real gem – as Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen begins the number with a long bass bit that's wonderful – which then ignites Peterson's piano into these long-rolling lines that really fit the spirit of the number! Other tunes spin out with a similar magic – still familiar Peterson modes, but kind of a deeper sense of lyricism too. Terry Clark handles drums – and titles include "Nigerian Marketplace", "Cakewalk", "Nancy With The Laughing Face", "You Look Good To Me", and "Au Privave". LP, Vinyl record album

Piano, guitar, and bass – all moving along at an almost effortless pace – and a perfect model of the fluid Oscar Peterson sound of the mid 50s! There's a lightly grooving, almost-singing quality to most of the tunes on the set – that ringing Peterson piano sound meeting up with the guitar of Herb Ellis and the warmer bass of Ray Brown – all moving perfectly together in an exploration of a number of familiar tunes. At times, some bluesier modes come into play – but never in a way that's too forced or hokey – and titles include "The Champ", "Easy Listenin' Blues", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Should I", and "When Lights Are Low".

Oscar's fluid touch on the keys is perfect throughout – taking lots of chances, but always strongly following the melody – and rhythm accompaniment is from longtime partner Ray Brown on bass plus Barney Kessel on guitar. Titles include "In The Still Of The Night", "Love For Sale", "What Is This Ting Called Love", "Just One Of Those Things", "Night & Day", "So Near Yet So Far", and "Every Time We Say Goodbye".

Oscar PetersonRomance – The Vocal Stylings Of Oscar Peterson ... LP
Verve, 1952. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An overlooked side of the Oscar Peterson genius of the 50s – an album of laidback vocal tracks that are a great change from his better-known instrumental work! Peterson's not the sort of singer to belt out a tune at the top of his lungs – nor cast it in shimmering gossamer like some of his more composed contemporaries. And instead, he's got this nicely earthy, very human way of putting over a tune – a bit less polished than his near-perfect piano work, which also graces the backdrops of all the tunes in the set. Most of the cuts here are mellow, and have a great wee hours, saloon-styled sort of feel – almost as if Oscar was working overtime for Verve, way past midnight, and started to croon to himself while playing the songs. Titles include "But Not For Me", "I'm Glad There Is You", "One For My Baby", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", "Spring Is Here", "These Foolish Things", and "From This Moment On".

A relatively laidback set from Oscar Peterson – just the kind of record we need to remind us of his strengths on the mellower side of the spectrum! The recording's a live one – done in LA in 1986 – and Peterson still brings a gentle vamp to most numbers, but also has an open, lyrical quality too – stretching out in a quartet with Joe Pass on guitar, Dave Young on bass, and Martin Drew on drums. The recording quality has Oscar most up front in the mix – which is great at the gentler moments – and titles include "Soft Winds", "Love Ballade", "Cool Walk", and "On The Trail". CD

The group here is the legendary combo with Ed Thigpen on drums and Ray Brown on bass – but on the album's long versions of "Sometimes I'm Happy", "In The Wee Small Hours" and "Chicago", it's Oscar's inventive work on the keys that really dominates the nearly 10 minute run of each track. Other shorter tunes include "Billy Boy", "Whisper Not", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Includes five bonus tracks. CD

Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well! Given how rarely Oscar sings on record, the album's a real treat – especially as his vocals capture the spirit of Cole surprisingly well – not exactly like Nat, but with the same mix of soul, swing, and class! Half the album features Peterson in trio formation – with Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass – in a way that recreates the King Cole Trio sound. Other tracks feature fuller backings from Manny Albam – nice and jazzy, in the style that Nat used during the 50s at Capitol! Titles are all Cole favorites – and include "Little Girl", "Unforgettable", "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry", "Easy Listening Blues", "Walkin My Baby Back Home", and "It's Only A Paper Moon".

As with the other MPS recordings in Oscar's career, the sound here is impeccable – very well done, and in a way that has the ringing tones of both players floating in air beautifully next to each other. Ray Brown's bass and the drums of Louis Hayes complete the group – and titles include "Satisfaction", "Dream Of You", "When I Fall In Love", "Red Top", "Reunion Blues", and "Some Day My Prince Will Come".

Verve, 1959/1962. Used ... $12.99
A tremendous little record, Bursting Out has Oscar Peterson really pushing the fuller, stronger sound he started with his trio of Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen – a set that features additional backings by Ernie Wilkins behind the core sound of the piano combo! The mode here is in that "all soul" style of Peterson's huge-selling Verve albums from the time – but the addition of a larger group makes for a mode that's even fresher – because Oscar rarely used any larger backings, so the record's a real standout! Hearing the strength of the tracks, we're a bit surprised that Peterson never made more albums like this – because there seems to be added inspiration from Wilkins' presence, giving Oscar even more focus and drive on his solos. A rare outing, but a great one – with titles that include "Blues For Big Scotia", "Tricotism", "Manteca", "I'm Old Fashioned", "West Coast Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "I Love You". An unusual set – Swinging Brass With The Oscar Peterson Trio – one of Peterson's few albums with a larger group – featuring some great arrangements from Russ Garcia! Titles include "Blues For Big Scotia", "Con Alma", "Cubano Chant", "OP", and "Little Pea's Blues". CD

The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn!

Verve, Mid 50s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Modern Jazz Quartet make a rare appearance on Verve Records in the 50s – splitting half the album here with the classic Oscar Peterson Trio! The live performance was recorded in Chicago, and definitely has the MJQ working in a looser vibe than on some of their late 50s recordings for Atlantic – a bit more open and swinging, in a Verve mode – with some of the bop inspiration that first showed up on their early Prestige recordings – as you'll hear on the cuts "Now's The Time", "Round Midnight", and "D&E Blues". The second half of the record features live material from Oscar Peterson's hip group with Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass – that great drum-less lineup that really lets Oscar take off on piano – on tunes that include "Big Fat Mama", "Should I Love You", "Indiana", and "Elevation".

Affinity – a beautiful word to describe the Peterson trio on this set – as at the time of the recording, Oscar's piano was perfectly matched with the bass of Ray Brown and the drums of Ed Thigpen! The album's got a simple genius that's hard to describe adequately – especially as the Peterson approach has been copied by so many other players over the years. Suffice it to say that the tunes are a masterpiece of simple, elegant soul – understated but never under-performed – on a set list that includes "Six & Four", "Waltz For Debbie", "Gravy Waltz", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads".

Peterson's really romping around the keys on some of the tunes – hitting hard with the left hand in a nicely bluesy mode on some numbers, then rolling back to his more lyrically introspective style on others. The whole thing's got a great MPS approach to production that makes the notes ring forth with amazing clarity – and titles include "Blues For Martha", "Greensleeves", "All The Things You Are", "I'm Old Fashioned", "The JAMFs Are Coming", and "Carolina Shout".

The album features Oscar working some incredible wonders on the piano – working with either Sam Jones or Ray Brown on bass and Bob Durham or Louis Hayes on drums. The tunes are simple and elegant, but Peterson's work on the keys takes them to a whole new place – taking off even farther than his American sides at the time with the freedom allowed him by MPS.

RCA (Japan), Late 40s. Very Good+ 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare pre-Verve material from the great Oscar Peterson – a host of early tracks recorded for RCA in the 50s! If you think that Peterson only emerged fully-formed in the hands of Norman Granz during the 50s, then think again – because this work really shows a young player already hitting tremendous heights – full, fluid, and very commanding – at a level that's kind of a rougher around the edges version of his Verve years – but in a great way! Peterson echoes some of his predecessors a bit – and you can hear a bit more proximity to Erroll Garner or Eddie Heywood in the way he embraces the rhythms with his solos – but the overall presentation is still pure Oscar. The album's packaged in a heavy cardboard cover, with most of the notes in Japanese – and a set of titles that includes "Flying Home", "I Got Rhythm", "Smiles", "Stairway To The Stars", "Oop Bop Sh-Ram", "Fine & Dandy", and "Honeydripper".

Verve, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set! The album's got a rock-solid sound that's filled with soul – almost a bit more down and dirty than some of Peterson's earlier work, very much in the spirit of the group's hit performance of the title track. In a way, the album's almost Oscar's answer to some of the rising younger stars in the soul jazz scene – and is proof that the master still can do things as great as the artists he inspired. Ray Brown is on bass and Ed Thigpen is on drums – and tracks include "Bag's Groove", "Georgia On My Mind", "Easy Does It", "Band Call", and "Night Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Given that origin, though, the material is quite strong – recorded with an edge that's slightly earthier than usual for Verve at the time, but with a clarity that still beautifully displays Peterson's dynamic work on the keys – as well as the gentle guitar backing of Herb Ellis and the always-great bass tones of Ray Brown.

The group here features Ray Brown on bass and Gene Gammage on drums – playing with a touch on the kit that's perhaps a bit harder than that of Ed Thigpen in the Peterson trio, but in a way that lets some tunes groove along nicely too.

The tracks on the set stretch out longer than most of the group's studio sessions from the time, and the album's recorded in a great way that also includes Oscar's mumbling at the keys – that humming and grunting style that isn't always caught on record, but which adds a great deal of grit and humanity to the record – especially considering his fluid grace on the piano! As usual, Ray Brown is on bass and Ed Thigpen's on drums – and titles include "Tricotism", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Thag's Dance", and "Kadota's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar's touch on the keys is quick, but never thoughtless – and his ease of approach in a mode like this is somehow even more incredible than some of his trio work of the time.

An overlooked 60s gem from Oscar Peterson – one of his great sides for Limelight Records, and possibly the most soulful of the bunch! The group's a trio – with either Sam Jones or Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and they've got a really great feel, one that's a bit different than some of Oscar's earlier groups of the 60s. Hayes' work on drums is nicely sensitive, and almost takes backseat to Peterson's rhythmic piano lines at times – and Jones' work on bass is always a treat, and kicks some of the best tracks here into a really great groove! The record's got a few great original titles, too – like the midtempo groover "Bossa Beguine", and the groovy "L'Impossible", a cool little instrumental that sounds like it was from a soundtrack by Francis Lai or Michel Legrand, and the title track "Blues Etude".

Peterson is tremendous throughout on the keys – all over the place, but always in control – really burning up the 88s with a command of his instrument that few players could match!

✨✧ Lester YoungLester Young With The Oscar Peterson Trio (aka President Plays With The Oscar Peterson Trio) ... CD
Verve/Universal, 1952. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve! Young's tone is tremendous throughout – that sharp-yet-cool style that had such a big influence on other 50s players, and which gets some great support here from Peterson's group, which also features guest guitar from Barney Kessel. Oscar's piano lines are a bit more forceful than usual – possibly because of the presence of Prez – and titles include "I Can't Get Started", "Ad Lib Blues", "Just You Just Me", "Two To Tango", "I'm Confessin", "There Will Never Be Another You", and "Almost Like Being In Love".

Lester YoungPres & Teddy & Oscar ... LP
Verve, 1952/1956. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A pairing of 2 mid-50s sides by Lester Young for Verve – one album recorded with Teddy Wilson on piano, the other with Oscar Peterson – hence the title! The Wilson session was recorded in 1956, and featuers Gene Ramey on bass and Jo Jones on drums – with tracks that include "Louise", "Pres Returns", "All Of Me", "Prisoner Of Love", and "Love Is Here To Stay". The Peterson session was recorded earlier, in 1952, with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums – with titles that include "Ad Lib Blues", "Star Dust", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", "There Will Never Ever Be Another You", "I'm Confessin", and "These Foolish Things".

Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry EdisonTour De Force – The Trumpets Of Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry Edison ... LP
Verve, 1955. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A triple-trumpet session with a really wonderful sound – the kind of all-star date that only a label like Verve could have done so well! As you'll guess from the title, the record's a showcase for the three trumpeters in the lead – and the tracks are long, with plenty of space for each player to state their case in a very distinct solo voice. Rhythm is by a familiar quartet that features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – and the use of guitar in a set like this creates an especially ringing tone at the bottom, one that often seems echoed by the brighter notes of the trumpet over the top. The album's got a great extended "Ballad Medley", plus long takes on "Tour De Force" and "Steeplechase". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzOut Of Nowhere – Dear Old Stan Getz Vol 2 ... LP
Marshmallow (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $44.99
Great overseas material from Stan Getz – tracks that echo some of his work on the Stan Getz At Large album from Sweden, but which also take off nicely in other directions as well! The first half of the set features Stan blowing tenor with piano from Swedish genius Jan Johansson, plus rhythm from the Oscar Peterson team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! The set's got an unusual balance that sets it apart from even other Getz albums of the time – a vibe that might have made it a special Verve album, had it gotten released at the time – recorded beautifully with a clarity that matches any of Stan's studio albums too! Tracks are nice and long, with wonderfully fluid tenor lines from Getz – and titles include "Land's End", "Woody N You", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", and "I Remember Clifford". Next are two tracks recorded in Stockholm in 1958 - with Oscar Peterson on piano and Herb Ellis on guitar – on "Out Of Nowhere" and "It Never Entered My Mind". Last are three numbers recorded in Copenhagen in 1959 – with Johansson on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Joe Harris on drums – on "Laverne Walk", "I Remember Clifford", and "Stuffy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 999! Heavy vinyl in a heavy tip-on cover!)

Stan Getz & JJ JohnsonStan Getz & JJ Johnson Set 1957 (aka Stan Getz & JJ Johnson At The Opera House) ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $3.99
A strange pairing – but that's sometimes what makes these Verve "pro meets pro" sets from the 50s so great. Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode of the recording. Titles include "Billie's Bounce", "My Funny Valentine", "Crazy Rhythm", and "Blues In The Closet". LP, Vinyl record album
