With powerful swing and pyrotechnic virtuosity, Oscar Peterson was a great genius of the piano. On these recordings, made between 1952 and 1956, the Canadian was accompanied by his faithful double bass player, Ray Brown, and two excellent guitarists, Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis. On the first disc, Peterson plays the repertoire of Count Basie with help from drummer Buddy Rich, followed by some of the great standard writers: Gershwin, Ellington, Arlen, Berlin... The second disc features some of his most impressive live trio recordings on which his abiding love for the stage is made clear. Piano pour pianiste is fascinating with its immaculate rhythms and every phrase imbued with beautiful harmonic poetry. Even (or especially) when it comes to the (occasionally somewhat hackneyed) standards, Oscar Peterson is able to carve out a fascinating swing that's all his own. Throughout this unmissable album, he preserves the heritage of his idols (the lyricism of Nat King Cole and the velocity of Art Tatum) with a high-flying refinement. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
