- Stan Getz & Oscar Peterson Trio [Import]
- (180 Gram Vinyl)
- Artist: Oscar Peterson
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 12/13/2011
Limited 180 gm vinyl repressing. What we have here is not a good quartet, but an excellent one. In fact, it is the result of a well rehearsed trio: Oscar Peterson's celebrated unit with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown, plus the beautiful sound of Stan Getz's tenor sax. Peterson and Getz display their truly creative interplay on these sides. This album constitutes their only studio album in a quartet format. The absence of drums adds a magical atmosphere to the warm sound of Getz's saxophone on the ballads, while on the swing tunes, Peterson's skill with his left hand combined with Ellis rhythm guitar work leave no free space for a drummer.
