CD Reviews

Oscar on automatic
S J Buck | Kent, UK | 09/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I am a huge fan of Oscar Peterson, but this is really a very average Peterson album. Don't get me wrong the trio are fine and the playing is as good as you would expect. The problem is the lack of variation. Most of the tunes are played mid-tempo and Oscar never really stretches himself. The only semi-uptempo number is "It happened in Monterey".

Out of 12 tracks only 5 are longer than 3 minutes and none are longer than 4. Indeed one is less than 2 minutes. So I'm afriad this means you get a theme statement short solo and theme again on nearly all tracks.

There is nothing wrong this album, but there are literally dozens of better Oscar Peterson albums to get first.

"This trio is so versatile , no wonder they are seen as a classic unit .
It helps if you know the lyrics to all these songs , as that helps you to enjoy it even more . There is no wasted time on the album - it is brief , but all the arrangements are perfect .

The infectious and positive spirit of the trio comes across undiluted on the album .
Great for a party , in the car or relaxing at home .
Listening to it is one of my favourite ways to pass the time ."
