An alum for all jazz lovers
David Flick | 03/23/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I just saw "Oscar Peterson & Nelson Riddle" on this website. When I was younger, and the technology was not as advanced as it is, I bought a reel to reel tape of this album, and to say that I played it extensively is an understatement. Most of the songs are what I call "moody'; they set the tone for a slow, romantic dance-type mood. However, there are two songs, "A Sleepin' Bee" and "Someday My Prince Will Come" that just swing! All in all, a good album, and one that I can enjoy again."
Finally on CD, but I hate digipacks

"This is a fun recording, swaying from soft and elegant arrangements to up-tempo big band scoring. Oscar and the trio's playing is in fine form and Nelson's orchestra is spot on. My only complaint is the digipak (digipack). These things stink. The plastic CD tray has already caused a bunch of scuffing wear on the back cover. If companies must release these recordings without jewel cases, at least go the mini-LP route (with its own resealable outer plastic sleeve, just like the Japanese do). At least this way you have something that replicates the original vinyl release and is much more collectable/desirable."

"A perfect example of Nelson Riddle's genius as a arranger/conductor. And a showcase for the brilliant pianist Oscar Peterson."
