When Milt Jackson met Oscar Peterson, each had already made dozens of albums under his own name. Yet in this summit meeting each selflessly yields the spotlight to showcase the other. Jackson's meeting here with Ray Brown, though, was a reunion: They had both been in Dizzy Gillespie's 1946 band and then were charter members of the Modern Jazz Quartet. This is such a landmark recording that it has led to three sequel albums. "Recorded in 1961, this Verve recording casts Peterson in the unusual role of supporting artist. With Jackson, Peterson, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen on duty you know that the playing will be flawless. The question, as with so many temporary meetings of greats, is will the music get beyond virtuoso jousting to result in something really special. Well, this is one of those rare occasions when the participants really click, and the resulting performances shine…Those who see Peterson as a consummate technician should experience the range of moods he throws behind Jackson's flawless playing. Soulful, they're what transports this album beyond the ordinary and turns it into a record you should buy. That and the excellent Speakers Corner pressing which easily improves on my somewhat tawdry original." - Recording = 8/10; Music = 9/10 - Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+ Track Listing 1. Green Dolphin Street 2.

sixties recorded tapes. Bags hits his mark as always
with Oscar comping and soloing strong,
sounding like John Lewis of the MJQ,
playing quietly in the higher octaves.
A must have for your collection. On
