AllMusic Review by

This was one in a series of recordings pianist Oscar Peterson did showcasing the music of particular American composers. It was really hard to get up a great enthusiasm for this set with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen because there's so much superior Peterson available. An easy ballad approach mixed with the usual Peterson panache on the swingers. The relative quality of Peterson's playing was high and this reached that minimum. This was a "good" set of Cole Porter; there are many better Oscar Peterson outings.
