Oscar Peterson has thoroughly assimilated not just every piano style that
preceded him but every ensemble idiom as well: swinging big bands, gospel,
European classical, and, of course, the blues. Having mastered all of this,
Peterson found the standard piano trio the perfect vehicle for exploring all of
these types of music. In this classic LP, the crowning achievement in his
greatest year, Peterson doesn't just explore these styles - he conquers them.
"Many of the tunes like the familiar title tune, 'Night Train' (also known later as Duke Ellington's 'Happy Go Lucky Local') were first heard by most in big band arrangements that Peterson manages to re-invent without losing any of the color or even the dynamic shadings the larger ensembles more easily produced...the trio's virtuosity never fails to entertain." - Michael Fremer, analogplanet, Music 8/11, Sound 9/11
