Oscar Peterson

At The London House - The Complete Master Takes (3 CD set)

Lone Hill Jazz

Reference: LHJ10219_3

Bar code: 8436019582190

The complete recordings from the 1961 London House sessions by the Oscar Peterson Trio - recorded in Chicago by a lineup that includes Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums! Material on this 3CD package originally appeared on a handful of Verve albums in the 60s - including Put On A Happy Face, Sound Of The Trio, Something Warm, and Live In Chicago - and this collection features only the master takes from those recordings, not all the alternates and other bits that kind of cluttered up an earlier Verve 5-CD release of the London House recordings.

Peterson is at the height of his powers throughout - often really taking off on longer tunes that test the full range of his talents - working the keyboard with magnificent power, but always swinging, always grooving, and never showing off with unnecessary flutters and flourishes. Thigpen's drumming is an especial treat to our ears - as his mix of rhythm and melodic invention is almost a little sideshow on the record itself, were it not tied so strongly to the overall groove of the group.
