"Lionel Hampton (1909) belongs to the select group of great bandleaders and is one of the pioneers on the vibraphone. Typical is Hamptons rhythmical variation is his melodies, which in my opinion is a bit bebop-like.Oscar Peterson (1925) is a solid but smooth pianist, with experience in almost any period in Jazz. His style is complex and subtily smoooth ... He played with some of the great names in Jazz, which speaks for itself.Those two together make a great album, with beautiful melodies and offer an almost tender approach which can only be done by the great. The quality is fine, the music very relaxing. You could run it on the background all day, but its really too good for that! Listen and enjoy."
