Our Price: $74.99

  • Both sides of this wonderful Basie/Peterson record boast outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Jazz records don't get a whole lot bigger, clearer or more full-bodied - man, this is the glorious sound of ANALOG
  • "The two pianists (backed by bassist John Heard and drummer Louis Bellson) play five standards and three blues with predictable swing, finding much more in common with each other than one might have originally suspected."

Benny Carter - Meets Oscar Peterson

Reviewed in 2007

  (Item #: cartemeets_2007) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This Minty looking Pablo Promo LP, engineered by Allen Sides, is one of the TOP PABLO titles for both sound and music. Top Recommendation.

Coleman Hawkins / Ben Webster - Encounters

Classic Records Reviewed

  (Item #: hawkiencou_classic_records) 



Sonic Grade: B

Probably a fairly good Classic Records jazz album. Years ago we wrote:

"A top top jazz title! This is one of our favorite Classic Records LPs from the old days when we were selling Heavy Vinyl. We haven't played this record in a long time but we liked it very much when it was in print in the '90s."

We can't be sure that we would still feel the same way. My guess is that this is still a fairly good record if you can get one for the 30 bucks we used to charge.

Count Basie & Oscar Peterson - The Timekeepers

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: basietimek_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Hot Stamper sound on both sides of this Pablo original pressing of the Two Masters in a small group setting. Basie and Peterson recorded five albums together, and this may very well be the best of the bunch, though I have yet to hear one that I didn't enjoy. I wrote a rave review about this title when I first heard it more than ten years ago. If you like small group piano jazz -- here we're talking two pianists accompanied by Louie Bellson on drums and John Heard on bass -- this should be right up your alley.

Count Basie & Oscar Peterson - The Timekeepers

Analogue Productions Doubted

  (Item #: basietimek_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: Probably Bad, But Who Knows?

Analogue Productions remastered this longtime favorite of ours, The Timekeepers, on 45 RPM vinyl. Considering their dismal track record -- an unbroken string of failures, scoring not a single winner with which I am familiar -- I'm guessing the Hot Stamper we offered here would have blown the doors off their version as well as any other Basie album they will ever do on vinyl.

Count Basie & Oscar Peterson - Yessir, That’s My Baby

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: basieyessi_2012) 



Side two of this wonderful Basie Peterson record has nearly White Hot Stamper Demo Disc sound -- jazz records don't get a whole lot bigger, clearer or more full-bodied. Man, that is the sound of glorious ANALOG. A++ to A+++ is our conservative grade. It might be worth the full Three Pluses but we just can't find enough copies to know if this side could get any better. There is not a single critical comment of any kind in the notes, so that ought to tell you that you are in for a real sonic treat with this side two.

Oscar Peterson - A Tribute To My Friends

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

This is one of the best Peterson records. It got rave reviews in the old catalog when we actually had sealed copies to sell. Those days are long gone.

Oscar Peterson - If You Could See Me Now

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: peterifyou_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is a SUPERB set from Oscar Peterson's sometimes underwhelming Pablo period. This one is from 1983 and includes the estimable Joe Pass on guitar. Side one has the kind of sound one associates with late-'70s jazz, jazz that often seems to be recorded in dead studios. Side two sounds much better somehow -- more clear, present and lively. The liner notes tell us it's the same studio, even the same day, but there is simply no mistaking the better sound quality. Such are the vagaries of the vinyl record. if you're in the market for a top quality Oscar Peterson piano trio recording (with bonus guitar), this side two should be just the ticket.

Oscar Peterson - Peterson + Harry Edison + Eddie Cleanhead Vinson

Reviewed in 2005

  (Item #: peterpeter_2005) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is a long out of print Pablo LP with AMAZING sound and music. It's one of those superb Allan Sides engineered recordings at Ocean Way, like Basie 88 Street. Demo disc quality sound is the result! With players like these, the music is every bit as good as any jazz record I know of. In other words, I really like this album.

Oscar Peterson - We Get Requests

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: peterweget_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is the way it must have sounded inside the RCA Studios in New York way back in 1964, not the club shown on the cover. The legendary RCA engineer BOB SIMPSON was behind the board.

Oscar Peterson Trio - The Trio - Live From Chicago

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: petertrio_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Boy, these original Strobe Label (and T label) Verve pressings are sure all over the map. If there’s one jazz label that gets an F for consistency, it’s Verve. And they typically get an F (or at best a D) for mastering as well, since good sounding Verve pressings are few and far between. I guess that should not come as much of a surprise to many of our long time customers, but to hear how bad some of these pressings are mastered is nevertheless pretty shocking. One of the Strobe label copies we played had such a boosted top end it was positively distorted. (The RIAA curve does not allow that kind of top end boost without causing serious problems.)

Oscar Peterson Trio - The Trio - Live From Chicago

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: petertrio_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Peterson really puts on a great show. He's made an awful lot of records during his career and most of them aren't especially noteworthy. This album is clearly an exception to that rule. ("If You Could See Me Now" is another one.)

This pressing was a huge step up from the other copies we played in our recent shootout. This copy has the immediacy that puts you front and center at The London House for a great jazz show. Ray Brown is incredible on the bass here.

Oscar Peterson Trio - The Trio - Live From Chicago

What to Listen For

  (Item #: petertrio_wtlf) 



What to Listen For? you ask?

Some copies are poorly mastered, so poorly that Ray Brown's bass all but disappears from the trio! Other copies made Thigpen's snare sound hard and too forward in the mix. This is obviously just a mastering EQ problem, since the good copies, such as this one, get all those elements to balance beautifully.

Speakers Corner Debunked

Sonic Grade: F

More vinyl dreck from Speakers Corner and a Hall of Shame pressing if there ever was one. Awful sound. Worse than the CD.

Oscar Peterson Trio - West Side Story

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: peterwests_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

I've known this was a very well recorded album since I first heard the DCC gold CD back in the '90s.

It sounded great to me at the time -- I had nothing to compare it to -- but it sure didn't sound like this! This album is clearly one of the best jazz piano recordings I've ever played. In its own way it's every bit as good as that other landmark recording, The Three, from 1975.

Terry, Hubbard, Gillespie, & Peterson - The Alternate Blues

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: terryalter_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

With Hot Stamper sound on both sides, this Pablo disc shows you what three of the greatest trumpeters of the last fifty years can do given the opportunity, nay, the encouragement, to let loose on a handful of classic slow blues jams. Many of the tracks here run in excess of eight minutes, giving the players plenty of space to explore, yet practically all of them are taken at a fairly slow pace, what used to be called a "slow drag", making them that much more involving and emotional. These are not your classic "blowing sessions" where the players try to outdo each other. No, this is something quite different.

The Recordings of Oscar Peterson

These Four Didn't Make the Grade

  (Item #: peterson_oscar_2) 



These are just some of the recordings by Oscar Peterson that we've auditioned recently and found wanting. Without going into specifics we'll just say these albums suffer from poor performances, poor sound, or both, and therefore do not deserve a place in your collection, and may even belong in our Hall of Shame.
