AllMusic Review by

Pianist Oscar Peterson is in his usual hard-swinging form on this LP which features one of his more obscure trios (with bassist George Mraz and drummer Ray Price). In addition to such standards as "I'm Old Fashioned," "All the Things You Are" and "Too Close for Comfort," Peterson explores "Greensleeves," Johnny Griffin's "The Jamfs Are Coming" and (the biggest surprise) James P. Johnson's "Carolina Shout" which actually sounds much closer to "Little Rock Getaway."
