Jousts Review

by Scott Yanow

This album contains nine previously unissued performances from the sessions that resulted in Oscar Peterson's five duet albums with great trumpeters. Clark Terry, Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie and Harry "Sweets" Edison are heard on two songs apiece while Jon Faddis pops up on one duet. Eldridge's combative "Crazy Rhythm" and Faddis's "Oakland Blues" are highpoints although fans of this interesting series will want all of this often heated music.
