Eloquence Review

by Scott Yanow

This was the last album that pianist Oscar Peterson and bassist Ray Brown recorded with Ed Thigpen before the drummer departed from O.P.'s trio after six years of steady work. The music heard during this "live from Copenhagen" concert is excellent although, discounting brief selections at the beginning and end of the program, the six songs only total around 37 minutes for the CD reissue. Peterson is in particularly strong form on "Misty," "Django," a cooking "Autumn Leaves" and "Moanin'."
