Super Hot Stamper

Oscar Peterson
The Trio

  (Item #: petertrio_1812_1904_1908) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • This you-are-there live jazz classic on the rare early Strobe label earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • The piano sounds wonderfully full-bodied, warm, rich, and smooth - like a real piano, not a recorded one
  • Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen are The Trio, recorded here in 1961 at the height of their formidable powers
  • Peterson "...sticks to standards on this live [album] (a good example of the Trio's playing), stretching out 'Sometimes I'm Happy' creatively for over 11 minutes and uplifting such songs as 'In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,' 'Chicago' and 'The Night We Called It a Day.'"

Super Hot Stamper

The Oscar Peterson Trio
The Trio

  (Item #: petertrio_pablo_1908) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides of this vintage Pablo LP
  • The size, the weight, the solidity, the clarity, the energy, the rhythmic drive - it's all here and more
  • 5 stars: "Guitarist Joe Pass and bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen both play well on these live performances, but the reason to acquire this set is for the remarkable Oscar Peterson. Peterson really flourished during his years with Norman Granz's Pablo label, and this was one of his finest recordings of the period."

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.
