CD Reviews

You MUST have this in your collection NOW.
Farrar Hudkins | New Orleans | 01/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album transcends a mere designation of "live jazz." Here are three artists undeniably in their prime, playing for a crowd of hundreds with an intimacy found usually only in small, smoky clubs after three in the morning, when the lovers and the working men are drinking slowly in the inky shadows and becoming soothed and thrilled by what they hear. You won't be able to put this record down the moment you hear the musical interplay between Oscar and Co., and you'll feel the entire gamut of emotions in the first medley on the second CD (a unique combination of Bonhá/Jobim and David Gates compositions). This album soothes; comforts; inspires thoughts of past, present, and future; and "washes from the soul the dust of everyday life"; there's nothing better. You'll be there."
The Great Concert
Eugene Moerman | Jerusalem, Israel | 06/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best Oscar's concert albums. It contains beautiful improvisations by the staff. Pass and Pederson express themselves not less than Peterson in all tunes. There are 2 tracks they play without Peterson. The very great tune is Soft Winds - you may listen to it very often and you are never tired of it. The must album for every jazz fan."
O.P. rulez!

"Groovy, babe, how, how, how can I disagree? This is one of the finest live jazz concerts ever recorded! All the compositions are brilliantly performed; some tracks feature Joe Pass-solo, others a Pass/Pedersen duo. This recording is very special to me as it was the first performance of the immortal MANHA DE CARNAVAL by L.Bonfa that I've ever heard. If you have some respect to the genius of Oscar Peterson and enjoy live performances you should get this CD ASAP."
