Oscar Petersons relationship with Ray Brown had begun in 1949, when both performed together at Carnegie Hall during one of Norman Granzs Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts. From 1950 to 1952, Granz would often record the two musicians in a duo format, or even in trio, with Barney Kessel or Irving Ashby on guitar. From then on both would play and record in many formats, under Petersons name, multiple JATP concerts or backing such stars as Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald (who was Browns wife), Lester Young or Ben Webster, to name just a few.

This release presents a rarely heard concert by Oscar Peterson in Ljubljana, Yugoslavia. Brilliantly recorded, it is a perfect example of the interaction and mutual understanding of the Peterson - Brown - Thigpen unit, which would break apart in mid-1965.

As a bonus, a London performance by the same unit taken from the soundtrack of a TV show.
