Count Basie & Oscar PetersonCount Basie Meets Oscar Peterson – The Timekeepers ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1978. Used ... $9.99
Twin pianos, recorded in a very easy-going setting – just the kind of record that will help you discover a whole new side of Count Basie, and fall in love with the work of Oscar Peterson all over again! We really dig these more laidback sides from the Pablo label in the 70s – and although this album's got a rhythm section (unlike some of Peterson's other meetings with contemporary jazz giants), the feel is still largely guided by the main soloists – especially given that Basie's style of vamping seems to pull in rhythm players John Heard on bass and Louis Bellson on drums. Tracks include "Soft Winds", "Rent Party", "Indiana", "Hey Raymond", "After You've Gone", and "That's The One". CD

Oscar PetersonA Time For Love – The Oscar Peterson Quartet Live In Helsinki 1987 ... CD
Mack Avenue, 1987. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
A well-done live set from the legendary pianist Oscar Peterson – and one that resonates strongly with his earlier material for the Pablo label, given that the group also features guitarist Joe Pass! The live setting is really used well here – as there's two extremely long cuts – a 19 minute "Duke Ellington Medley", and an equally long "Salute To Bach" – bringing jazz improvisation to territory that we're not sure we've heard Peterson or Pass play before! The other tracks are all nice and long too – and the group features Dave Young on bass and Martin Drew on drums – on titles that include "Cool Walk", "Sushi", "Love Ballade", "Cakewalk", "Soft Winds", "A Time For Love", and "Waltz For Debby".

Oscar PetersonBlues Etude ... CD
Limelight/Polygram, 1965. Used ... $8.99
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". Other titles include "Let's Fall In Love", "Shelley's World", "I Know You Oh So Well", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

One of Oscar Peterson's most sophisticated albums of the 60s – an extended suite of tracks dedicated to the soul and spirit of Canada! The tunes are all originals, and have a really lush, vivid sort of feel – one that still has undercurrents of Peterson's usual soulful style, but which also has Oscar painting these very vivid images in sound! The material is performed by a trio with Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and although the tunes aren't familiar, we'd rank this one right up there with Peterson's most inventive material of the time. Titles include "Laurentide Waltz", "Ballad To The East", "Blues Of The Praries", and "Wheatland". LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PetersonJazz Soul Of Oscar Peterson/Affinity ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $6.99
One of the first Oscar Peterson albums to ever feature "soul" in the title – added, no doubt, as a way of keeping up with Ray Bryant and other pianists making their name in the growing soul jazz field at the time! There's a groove here that's a bit harder than usual for Peterson on Verve – a heavier approach to rhythm on the keys, and a more focused trio formation – one that clearly sets a pace for albums to come in the 60s, but which must have been relatively striking to Peterson fans at this point. The trio here features Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and tracks are longer than usual, with some really great room to stretch out! Titles include "Liza", "Con Alma", "Close Your Eyes", "Maidens Of Cadiz", and "Woody'n You". 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".

Oscar PetersonKeyboard – Music By Oscar Peterson ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $18.99
An unusual Verve album from Oscar Peterson, and one that really lives up to its title! There's no drummer on the album at all – just bass from either Ray Brown or Major Holley – which leaves plenty of space for Oscar's work on the keys of the piano, opening up warmly with a really fluid sound. The tunes still have that romping quality of Peterson's early years on Verve, but a bit more lyricism too – and titles include "Tico Tico", "Robbins Nest", "Get Happy", "Easy To Love", "Deep Purple", and "Squatty Roo".

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

Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Collection (In A Romantic Mood/Swinging Brass With The Oscar Peterson Trio) ... LP
Verve, 1955. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
2 classic albums from Oscar Peterson – packaged together in one 70s collection! First up is In a Romantic Mood – a rare "with strings" date! We love Oscar Peterson with strings – a setting he never got to use that often, given the popularity of his famous trio recordings! When Oscar gets set up with strings, he seems to play even more freely than with a combo – let loose from rhythm a bit more than before, and instead focusing strongly on melody – which often comes off with a warmly lyrical feel. This album's a rare entry into the Peterson strings category – a great 50s date with Russ Garcia backing Oscar up – giving the album just the right mix of mellow and modern to match Peterson's magical work on the keys! In a way, the album's a link between two different styles of 50s jazz – some of the warmer string-laden work of the piano mainstream, and some of the sharper sounds of the Verve modern approach to the style – served up here by Oscar in ways that bring both modes together perfectly, with just the right dash of both. Titles include "Laura" and "Tenderly" – both tracks you'd have to have on an album like this – plus "Black Coffee", "Ruby", "Stella By Starlight", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", and "I Thought About You". Next is another 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! 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 the usual team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. Titles include "In The Still Of The Night", "Love For Sale", "It's All Right With Me", "Just One Of Those Things", "Night & Day", "It's De-Lovely", and "I Love Paris". LP, Vinyl record album

Clef, 1959. Very Good+ ... $16.99
The classic tunes of Duke Ellington are turned towards the soulful style of the Oscar Peterson Trio – in a setting that makes these familiar numbers come alive again with a whole new quality! The Peterson touch is quite different than the Ellington one – a bit less modern, especially in a small group setting – and filled with little flourishes that would never come out of the piano on one of Duke's recordings, but which flow freely here in the hands of Oscar. Rhythm is by the classic Peterson trio team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Ed's drumming is especially nice here, and helps to open up the easygoing feel of the set. Titles include "Sitting & Rocking", "John Hardy's Wife", "In A Mellow Tone", "Sophisticated Lady", "Take The A Train", "Rockin In Rhythm", and "Prelude To A Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

We can't remember when the 2 players had worked together before in order to have such "reunion" – but they work together beautifully on this session, with Jackson's vibes bringing in a whole new range of colors, tones, and sounds to the usual Peterson set! 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, 1957. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The Oscar Peterson trio of the 50s – both by itself, and augmented by some great horn work too – all recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! Side one of the album features the group alone – Oscar on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Ray Brown on bass – all in that perfectly fluid drumless groove the group handled so greatly at the time – leaping and soaring, always with a rhythmic pulse that was all their own. Side two features the group expanded to a sextet – drummer Jo Jones added in for rhythm, plus Roy Eldridge on trumpet and Sonny Stitt on both alto and tenor sax. These tracks have a slightly looser feel – more in some of the Verve studio jam modes, with some nice room for solos from the horn players! Titles include "Will You Still be Mine", "Joy Spring", "Gal In Calico", "52nd Street Theme", "Monitor Blues", "Willow Weep For Me", "Autumn In New York", and "Roy's Son". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1961. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Strong work from the Peterson Trio's London House gig in Chicago in 1961 – material that offers some slightly longer than usual takes on the group's sound, especially on a few numbers that really let Oscar open up on the keys! 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson joins the Oscar Peterson Trio – helping the group to hit some great new space with his magical work on vibes! Jackson's got an open, airy feel – an approach that almost lets Peterson punctuate the tunes a bit more with his piano – while the pair get strong rhythmic support from the bass of Ray Brown and lyrical drums of Ed Thigpen. Tunes are open and relaxed, letting Milt hit some great mellow tones – and titles include "Green Dolphin Street", "Heartstrings", "The Work Song", "John Brown's Body", "A Wonderful Guy" and "Reunion Blues".

Pablo, 1974. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A striking little record – and the kind that both players could only have made with the new freedoms in jazz recording of the 70s! Although Peterson and Gillespie had played together before on earlier Verve albums, the setting was never like this – because the album's only a duet between trumpet and piano, with no other instrumentation at all – yet the sound is amazing swinging! Peterson works almost as a one man rhythm section here – bouncing the tunes with plenty of hard inflections on his left hand – and setting up a swing that Dizzy blows over with warmly muted tones. There's a quality here that's personal – but not in that "oh look at us, we're such big stars" sort of way – and titles include "Mozambique", "Caravan", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Blues For Bird", and "Con Alma" – always a treat to hear in a setting like this!

MPS, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

Verve, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s! Stan's tone fits perfectly with the group here – and his playing next to the guitar of Herb Ellis recalls many of the fine strengths of the early 50s Getz sides with Jimmy Raney – although somehow coming across with even more depth and imagination here – probably a result of the more sophisticated approach to productions handled by Verve! Peterson's no slouch, either – but Stan's the man who really makes the session sparkle – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Tour's End", "Bronx Blues", "I Was Doing All Right", and "I'm Glad There's You".

Sonny StittSittin In (Only The Blues/Sonny Stitt Sits In With The Oscar Peterson Trio) ... LP
Verve, 1957/1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
2 classic Sonny Stitt Sessions for Verve – back to back in a 2LP set! Only The Blues is probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all pretty darn excellent! The record's a very laidback session, with 4 long tracks that feature plenty of room for Stitt to meander along on his solos. The group includes Roy Eldridge, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey – and titles include "The String", "BW Blues", and "Blues For Bags". On the second album, Sonny Stitt joins in with the Oscar Peterson Trio – in a way that makes Oscar sit up and groove! The record's a great one – and uses the Peterson group as a perfect rhythm section for Sonny's confidently blown solos of the late 50s – in a way that pushes the trio past their usual safe area, and into more freewheeling territory to keep up with Stitt's sense of power and invention! The tunes on the set are every bit as great as those on Stitt's own albums as a leader for Verve – crisp, clear, and perfectly blown – a masterpiece of subtle creativity and one of the greatest tones to ever emerge from the saxophone! Titles include "Au Privave", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Moten Swing", and "Easy Does It". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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".

Brownswood (UK), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic moment of music from a single day in the studio – a real outpouring of creative activity from the contemporary London scene! MV4 stands for studio four at Maida Vale – a legendary London recording spot, host on this day to some of the hippest talents in the city, brought together under the guidance of Gilles Peterson, who wanted to record some of his favorites for a broadcast on the BBC – a great blend of soul and jazz that really reflects the creative energy of the city! As with so much other work from London of late – especially releases on the Brownswood label – there's a very collaborative spirit going on, and almost all the tracks feature keyboard work from the great Joe Armon-Jones, whose warm tones really add a lot of soul and spirit to the sessions – alongside vocals from Oscar Jerome, Fatima, and Hak Baker – and saxophone from Nubia Garcia. The Ishmael Ensemble get one track of their own – "The Chapel/Tunnels" – and other tunes include "Hold", "Only", "Starting Today", "Do You Really", "Almost Went Too Far", and "Thirsty Thursday".

Herb EllisEllis In Wonderland ... CD
Norgran/Verve, 1956. Used ... $12.99
Herb Ellis gets a hearty helping of horns on this set – working with key performances from Jimmy Giuffre, Charlie Mariano, and Harry Edison – all of whom really round out the sound of the record! Herb's guitar is certainly at the forefront of the record, but it's sitting nicely in a lineup that features Harry Edison on trumpet and Jimmy Giuffre on tenor sax, baritone, and clarinet – plus the alto of Charlie Mariano for all of side two of the record – and rhythm by Oscar Peterson on piano and Ray Brown on bass (with whom Ellis was then working in the Peterson Trio), plus Alvin Soller on drums. Ellis' solos dominate most of the record, but they're often set in some slightly tight, freshly modern, and unfortunately uncredited arrangements that have lots of Giuffre touches – warmed up considerably by Edison's trumpet. Titles include "Pogo", "Detour Ahead", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "A Simple Tune", "It Could Happen To You", and "Ellis In Wonderland". CD

The format here is a bit open-ended – almost like some of the earlier JATP sessions on Verve – with lots of room for personal interaction between the soloists, especially the horn players in the lead! These include Stan Getz on tenor, Gerry Mulligan on baritone sax, and Harry Edison on trumpet – working alongside Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums. Titles include a beautiful extended "Ballad Medley" – really a great illustration of the freedoms that Verve brought to jazz recording in the 50s – plus the titles"Chocolate Sundae", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "Candy".

Dizzy is always fantastic in this sort of loosely-crafted setting – and Getz's playing here is nicely relaxed, with more open-ended blowing than you might hear in some of his own sets as a leader. The pair play with backing by the Oscar Peterson trio – on titles that include "Siboney", "Impromptu", "Girl Of My Dreams", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". This CD also comes with 6 bonus tracks recorded live in Seattle in 1956 with Sonny Stitt on alto, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay on drums.

The record has Jackson working with the Oscar Peterson trio with Ray Brown on bass and Grady Tate on drums – and the overall structure of the tunes is definitely dictated by Peterson, but very strongly touched by Jackson once his vibes ring into the mix.

Brickman's a warmly lyrical player that really fits Alvin's spirit for the record – and the trio work their way through a number of well-crafted ballad renditions that almost make the whole thing feel like some of the more laidback material from the Oscar Peterson trio of the 60s – and maybe that's the whole idea with the "Night Train" in the title. Tracks include "Farewell Song", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Bag's Groove", "Night Train", "D & E", "Tranquility In The Woods", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", and "Some Other Time". CD

It may just be us, but there seems to be a lot more soul in Zoot's horn than ever before – more humanity, and a sort of pausing, almost faltering approach to the tunes that takes them way past their overdone versions. The rest of the group includes Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, George Mraz, and Grady Tate – but the Sims' sound is the main star of the set – and it's really wonderful!

✨✧ Ben WebsterSoulville (80s pressing) ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
The stuff of legends, and one of the best sides that Webster cut for Verve in the 50s, this reissue adds a whole 'nother set of quartet sides, recorded with almost the same group, minus Herbn Ellis and replacing Stan Levey with Ed Thigpen. On the original LP the group's a quintet – with the usual suspects (Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, Stan Levey), and a rolling easy groove that's a perfect platform for Webster's gutsy tenor. Norman Granz's formula of easy swing sessions didn't always work for everyone, but in this case, it's a perfect format – as you'll hear on tracks like "Soulville", "Last Date", and "Ill Wind". 15 tracks in all, also including "When Your Lover Has Gone", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", "Lover Come Back To Me" and "This Can't Be Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lionel HamptonLionel Hampton Quartet/Quintet ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Hamp's cool little open-ended sessions for Verve – done in a style that's much more jam-session oriented than some of his other work from earlier (or later) years! The album features Hamp playing vibes with a small combo that includes Buddy De Franco, Herb Ellis, Buddy Rich, Oscar Peterson, and Ray Brown, in varying combinations – and tracks include "Moonglow", "China Boy", "Dinah", and "This Can't Be Love". Great David Stone Martin cover too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove – nice and clean! Cover is nice, no splits – back has a few light notes in pen.)

✨✧ Ari BorgerAB4 ... CD
ST2 (Brazil), 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Cool keyboards from Ari Borger – a Brazilian jazz player, but one who's steeped in American soul jazz sounds of the 60s! The album's a bit more jazz than keyboard funk, but it's still pretty funky too – especially on some of the numbers that pick up the groove with some distinct mod soul influences. Some cuts are heavy on Hammond, others feature Fender Rhodes, and a few more straight acoustic piano – but always played with a heavy left hand, in a sort of Ray Bryant or Les McCann sort of way! Other instrumentation includes lots of guitar, bass, and percussion – and titles include "Nem Vem Miles", "Tributo A Oscar Peterson", "B3 Solo", "Senor Blues", "Trip Song", "Blind Man", and "Soul GI".

✨✧ Gene Krupa & Buddy RichRazor Sharp Rhythm – Krupa & Rich/Burnin' Beat ... CD
Not Now (UK), 1962/1965. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Features two classic albums on 2 CDs – Krupa & Rich is a wonderful meeting of two of the biggest 50s talents on the drums – and a session that's great not only for the expected firey percussion, but also for the horn work by other members on the set! Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". Burnin' Beat is a drum-heavy spectacular that returns Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich to their big band roots – thanks to some hard-swinging arrangements from George Williams! The tracks are a bit shorter and done with a larger group than on some of the other Rich or Krupa sides for Verve – but there actually seems to be even more drum pyrotechnics here, possibly because the players' efforts are compressed into such a tight space! Production is a bit odd – with the drums so high in the mix that they sometimes come across with more treble than bass – but that really highlights some of the most inventive moments on the top of the kit as well. Titles include "Duet", "Perdido", "Evolution", "Night Train", and "Hawaiian War Chant". CD

✨✧ Romano MussoliniSoft & Swing ... LP
Carosello (Italy), 1979. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
An incredible album of Fender Rhodes work from 70s Italy – every bit as soft and swinging as the title implies! The set's a great 70s update of the sound of Romanu Mussolini – a pianist who reached bigger fame in straighter settings during the postwar years – but who sounds really wonderful here in an unusual electric recording! Mussolini's touch on the keys is wonderful – as he tipples his way through a good assortment of tracks that range from the batucada-sounding "Brasiliana", to the moody "Duke" – which has an incredible piano/whistling line that sounds like it was lifted from a French film soundtrack! The album's worth it for that track alone, but the whole thing's great – and overflowing with wonderful tunes that include "Blues For Ugo", "Basie", "Mix In Glass", and "Omaggio A Oscar Peterson". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing, on Halidon.)

✨✧ Alvin QueenNight Train To Copenhagen ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Alvin Queen has given us some pretty heavy work over the years – but here, the drummer's showing off a different side of his talents – a gentler sense of rhythm that really fits the "night" spirit of the record – as he works alongside Calle Brickman on piano and Tobias Dall on bass! Brickman's a warmly lyrical player that really fits Alvin's spirit for the record – and the trio work their way through a number of well-crafted ballad renditions that almost make the whole thing feel like some of the more laidback material from the Oscar Peterson trio of the 60s – and maybe that's the whole idea with the "Night Train" in the title. Tracks include "Farewell Song", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Bag's Groove", "Night Train", "D & E", "Tranquility In The Woods", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", and "Some Other Time". CD
Also available Night Train To Copenhagen ... CD 11.99
