Music By Oscar Peterson

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover, which does not appear with the online set.

This is the 1957 Verve reissue (black label).

From the back cover: In its present form, the Oscar Peterson trio has been together for the last several years and it is increasingly a unit where teamwork is the watchword. Not long ago, Peterson himself told a Down Beat critic that his current major aim was in perfecting the unity of his trio as well as improving his own pianists. "What helps one, though, helps the other," Peterson said. "And we all get better together – as a trio."
