Duke Ellington's music has long excited Oscar Peterson. So when Pablo, in 1999, decided to assemble a collection of Peterson's interpretations of Ellington favorites, the label had a lot to choose from. Spanning 1967-1986, this collection of Norman Granz-produced Pablo sides reminds us how rewarding a combination Peterson's pianism and the Duke's compositions can be. The most obscure piece on the CD is "Lady of the Lavender Mist," which Ellington recorded in 1947 and quit playing altogether in 1952…

Jerome Kern's stage tunes – going back to the late '20s with the acclaimed presentation Show Boat – right up to the '40s, will forever be at the core of quintessential American popular songs that hold a dear place in the heart of all straight-ahead jazz performers. Oscar Peterson's immortal trio with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen play Kern's themes expertly, with no small degree of interpretation, and a clever angle on these well-worn songs that only Peterson can self-identify with his genius mindset. The title should be more accurately "The Jerome Kern & Friends Songbook," as he always co-wrote with such notables as Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach, Ira Gershwin, and Dorothy Fields…

Ne-o-clas-si-cism: A revival of classical aesthetics and forms, especially, characterized by a regard for the classical ideals of reason, form, and restraint, by order, symmetry, and simplicity of style. Neo-classicism and Roy Hargrove have become synonymous in jazz circles. His style and focus are now completely his own. Roy possesses a hard driving spirit to excel. Volumes have been written about the virtuosity of Oscar Peterson, his competitive spirit and drive. Together you have the makings of an exciting jam session that's well worth the price of admission. In this case the cost of the CD, that finds these two jazz poets working with a strong cast of players including Peterson's long time associate, Neils-Henning Ørsted Pedersen on bass. This quintet setting gives all the players ample room to stretch and have fun. This CD is highly recommended listening pleasure.

One knew where one stood with him. A stylistically reliable factor, from whom any jazz innovation seemed to bounce off like flotsam from a rock. With his physique alone Oscar Peterson radiated dominance, let alone with his performance. A Sun King on the piano, the absolute master of the trio, who – his co-musicians positioned behind his back – hardly needed any eye contact to convey his nonverbal stage directions. The short-lived trio together with George Mraz and Ray Price confirmed this impression even more than previous formations.

On Gillespie's second recording for Norman Granz's Pablo label, he joins Oscar Peterson for a set of miraculous duets. Benny Green, who wrote the liner notes for this album, compared this performance of Ellington's classic composition to the Armstrong and Hines rendition of "Weather Bird." Peterson melds a keen sense for complementary accompaniment with dexterous, interweaving polyphonic lines.

Not just another Oscar Peterson album (nothing wrong with that anyway!), this also features Clark Terry and Dizzy Gillespie on Trumpets and Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis on Tenor sax, as well as NHOP on bass and Bobby Durham on drums.
The first track starts at a ferocious pace and never lets up. The story about the title of this first track (Ali and Frazier) is told in the sleeve notes. Count Basie was sitting in the musicians room watching the concert on a TV monitor and noticed how serious the musicians were (you'd have to be serious the speed they are playing the piece at) and said:"Those cats aren't joking, they know what's coming up". At the end of the first number he turned to Norman Granz and said "Just like Ali and Frazier".
Track 3 is a steady rolling version of "Things Ain't What They Used To" which if the tempo is way down on the first number reaches some fantastic crescendo's - noteably Peterson's rolling tremelo at the end of his solo. The crowd are roaring at the end of this number. The album features some of the Giants of Jazz and is well worth getting.
