Oscar Peterson + Harry “Sweets” Edison + Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson {Pablo}


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)
During Nov. 12-14, 1986, pianist Oscar Peterson recorded three albums worth of material for Norman Granz’s Pablo label. This particular CD features the great pianist with his quartet (bassist Dave Young, drummer Martin Drew and guest guitarist Joe Pass) along with trumpeter Harry “Sweets” Edison and altoist Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson. The strictly instrumental set has many fine solos on appealing tunes such as “Stuffy,” “Broadway” and the lengthy blues “Slooow Drag.” This boppish session gave Vinson a rare chance to really stretch out and he was up for the challenge.

Tracklist:
01. Stuffy (09:14)
02. This One’s for Jaws (04:54)
03. Everything Happens to Me (04:37)
04. Broadway (05:14)
05. Slooow Drag (10:36)
06. What’s New (04:28)
07. Satin Doll (07:29)

Oscar Peterson – piano
