"I belive Oscar Peterson is the finest jazz pianist of the 20th century, and if only one CD could be the essential Peterson collection, this would be it!"
Oscar Peterson's Trio Performance:One of the Best.

"This re-release by Verve preserves, in my opinion, one of the best trio performances. 'In the Still of the Night',
Peterson's subtle single melody nuances and left hand chords are complimented by Ray Brown's wonderful bass. Ed Thigpen maintains the tempo with his stylish brush technique. The rest of the CD is hampered only slightly by the 'volme' inconsistencies from one number to the next, created by the studio. This is a great CD."

"OSCAR PETERSON's 1959 piano tribute to COLE PORTER is a joy even if it's only 33 minutes long.We could have take an another half hour of this music.What makes it so enjoyable is the variety of moods it delivers.There was actually another PORTER songbook recorded in mono,but for a reason i ignore,they did not coupled it with this one to make it last longer.A message to VERVE:did they lost the masters of the RICHARD RODGERS songbook,and if not,what are they waiting for?"
