Oscar Peterson Trio

Remastered and better-sounding than ever, o­n the Town was originally recorded live o­n July 5, 1958, at the Town Tavern in Toronto. With distinguished sidemen Herb Ellis o­n guitar and Ray Brown o­n bass, o­n the Town is among Oscar Peterson's greatest live recordings ever. This Montreal native's re-released album includes half a dozen jazz classics. Pennies from Heaven, along with Sweet Georgia Brown, are among the most recorded songs in the history of popular music. As many of you are aware, Sweet Georgia Brown was popularized as the Harlem Globetrotters' anthem. The musicians' tireless rehearsing has clearly resulted in the creation of perfect rhythmic patterns. o­n the Town also contains five bonus tracks. These songs, never before released, were initially destined for a sequel album that was never completed. A must for serious Oscar fans and jazz purists.
