This first matchup on records between pianist Oscar Peterson and vibraphonist Milt Jackson was so logical that it is surprising it did not occur five years earlier. Originally recorded for Verve and three decades later reissued on audiophile CD by Mobile Fidelity, the quartet set (which also includes bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen) swings as hard as one might expect.

Highlights include "On Green Dolphin Street," "The Work Song," "John Brown's Body" (a jam on "Battle Hymn of the Republic") and "Reunion Blues." Fortunately O.P. and Bags would meet up on records many times in the future (particularly during their Pablo years) but this first effort is a particularly strong set.

Track Listing:

On Green Dolphin Street
Heartstrings
Work Song
John Brown's Body Traditional
A Wonderful Guy
Reunion Blues

The Trio:

Oscar Peterson - Piano
Ray Brown - Bass
Ed Thigpen - Drums

Featuring:

Milt Jackson - Vibes

Recorded 1961 on Verve and is catalog number V6-8429. Released 1962.

Liner Notes by Nat Hentoff

Review:

This is a Jazz album that everyone should have in their collection. The Oscar Peterson Trio is joined Milt Jackson and what a beautiful album they create together.

Recorded in 1961 the album starts with On Green Dolphin Street. This is mellow and laid back for a while and then changes gear to swing. Perhaps the most noticeable thing about this track is Peterson's very restrained and delicate Piano solo. Even when the solo reaches the swing section there aren't the torrents of notes that you might expect. This is Oscar Peterson showing a different facet to his great talent.

This is one of the greatest jazz albums ever ! ! ! I particularly enjoy listening to "John Brown's Body", The stereo effect is wonderful, with Oscar coming from one channel and Milt from the other.
