As part of Verve’s Standards: Great Songs/Great Performances series, pianist Oscar Peterson is spotlighted on eight tracks recorded in the ‘50s. This set is aimed at the casual listener and includes top-notch performances of “Cheek to Cheek,” “That Old Black Magic,” and “Georgia on My Mind.” The shifting Peterson trio includes guitarists Herb Ellis and Barney Kessel, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Ed Thigpen. Trumpeter Clark Terry shares solo space with Peterson on “Mack the Knife.” While the music speaks for itself, the retail price in this Verve series is downright cheap which, unfortunately, means drab packaging and a lack of liner notes.
