Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson

The Very Tall Band Live

Telarc CD 83443

Oscar peterson, piano; Ray Brown, bass; Milt Jackson, vibes; Karriem Riggins, drums.

There is no question of doubt here, the three giants joined by a highly capable drummer to lay down some vital sounds, as would be expected from such a classy line-up. Oscar is amazing as usual, Ray is the very core of time, and Milt swings mightily while Riggins keeps it neat. What more is there to say? This is solid, straight-ahead Jazz played by the absolute masters of their instruments.
