Description

All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP of Oscar Peterson's Night Train Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes, Pressed at QRP, and Housed in Stoughton Gatefold Jacket

From the opening bars of the title track of this beautiful album, Oscar Peterson lays down the kind of piano playing for which he had been famous for well over a decade; the deftness of touch, the almost slight of hand, as he beguiles the listener into making it sound all too easy. Peterson talks through the piano and at his best he makes the piano sing. Just listen to "Georgia On My Mind" – who needs a vocal? While Peterson has at times, unfairly, been called an unemotional pianist, that is not a criticism that can be levelled at Night Train. It is a beautifully recorded album that makes the piano, long-time Peterson trio bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen sound as though they are in the room. Despite having sold Verve to MGM two years earlier, Norman Granz produced this album as he was Peterson's manager; it is a fitting tribute to both performer and mentor. This all-analog 180g vinyl LP reissue was mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, pressed at QRP, and comes housed in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket.

Musicians:
Oscar Peterson, piano
Ray Brown, bass
Ed Thigpen, drums
