Stan Getz Stan Getz And The Oscar Peterson Trio on 180g Import LP
This 1957 date for Verve was the only official collaboration between Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson and it finds the two jazz greats in a quartet rounded out by guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown. The lack of drums here allows Getz's tenor to pace the foreground with a graceful precision while Peterson's deft fills and relaxed accompaniment creates the perfect atmosphere for creative interplay and fine sonic detail.
The Norman Granz-produced 7-song set features a dynamic mix of standards, Getz originals like the heartening "Tour's End" and an infectious version of Ellis' "Detour Ahead." Getz even regarded this historic meeting with the Oscar Peterson Trio as, "One of the most enjoyable recordings I ever made. How refreshing it is to play with these pros."
