Review

Oscar Peterson recorded a countless number of albums for Norman Granz's Pablo label during 1972-83 before Granz decided to call a halt (which was temporary) to his company's operations. This set was the pianist's last before a three-year hiatus and it finds his quartet of the period (with guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Martin Drew) in typically swinging form on Miles Davis's "Weird Blues," a pair of Peterson originals, two veteran ballads and a ridiculously rapid "Limehouse Blues" which is taken as a Peterson-Pass duet. ~ Scott Yanow
