Digipak reissue of the complete original 1957 album, widely regarded as on of Getz' finest recordings. What we have here is not a good quartet, but an excellent one. In fact, it is the result of a well rehearsed trio: Oscar Peterson's celebrated unit with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown, plus the beautiful sound of Stan Getz's tenor sax. Peterson and Getz display their truly creative interplay on these sides. This album constitutes their only studio album in a quartet format. The absence of drums adds a magical atmosphere to the warm sound of Getz's saxophone on the ballads, while on the swing tunes, Peterson's skill with his left hand combined with Ellis' rhythm guitar work leave no free space for a drummer. 12 tracks.

"Peterson and Getz cooked well together, providing that rarely informed bop which survives fifty years after, carefree dignity intact."

"I bought this CD as part of my quest to collect all works by Mr. Oscar Peterson. In this particular purchase, I got introduced to Stan Getz, a great artist indeed. Music is such a personal thing than it can be difficult to put in words how one feels about a particular recording and this CD is no exception, other than to say GREAT CD. I still have to find one "bad" recording by Mr Oscar Peterson, for this CD isn't one of them. I love this CD so much."
