With the introduction of the LP in the mid-50s, jazz entrepreneur Norman Granz presented the jazz world with conceptual albums based on the work of the most famous American songwriters. While the better known songbooks recorded by Oscar Peterson were made in 1959 with his trio featuring Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums, he had made a whole series of songbooks showcasing the very same composers, and in most cases the very same tunes, in 1952-53, when his trio included the guitar (Barney Kessel or Herb Ellis) instead of drums. The Cole Porter songbook presented here features Kessel and belongs to a series of marathon sessions during November and December 1952, during which the group also waxed numerous compositions by the Gershwin brothers, Duke Ellington, and Irving Berlin. This is the best of Peterson, playing the best tunes of the best songwriter. A duet reading of Porter's "Easy to Love" by Peterson and Ray Brown has also been added here as a bonus.
