ONE OF PETERSON'S BEST ALBUMS
bruno | France | 12/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The whole album is outstanding. Nigerian Market Place is an absolutely breathtaking composition and performance by Perterson. It is both mysterious, hot, swinging. It starts and finishes quietly, but what an adventure in between ! This is powerful. All other traks are excellent. Au Privave is great. A very swinging and powerful piece is Peterson's performance of Nancy with the laughing face (please note that on the cd cover they made a mistake between this piece and the medley with Waltz for Debby, so Nancy... is #4 actually). To close the album, one of Peterson's bests performances of You look good to me. A real 5 star CD you must have. And what an energyser! The same kind of energy as in the album Walking the Line, reissued in the album TWO ORIGINALS. This Nigerian Market Place album is everlasting gold you will not regret."
Amazing!

"Oscar Peterson is simply amazing, blowing other jazz pianists out of the water with his lightning fast fingers, sensitive touch, and excellent feel and taste in jazz music. Between Peterson and his very solid rhythm section, this is one of the best jazz piano albums I have ever bought with great songs such as "Nancy With the Laughing Face," and his original song "Nigerian Marketplace" which continues to give me goosebumps every time I still hear it. There isn't a single bad track on the cd and maintains great sound quality for being a live performance. This is a must-buy!"
But the bass! the bass!

"By standards of piano playing, this is a good cd. The title composition is in fact quite remarkable. But what makes this a spectacular cd are some of Niels Henning's solos, and especially his comping on Nigerian Marketplace. This track is an encyclopedia of funk bass playing. Completely amazing."
