About the album
Back in 1960 the great promoter of Jazz Norman Granz organized another Jazz At The Philharmonic (JATP) concert tour through Europe with the Oscar Peterson Trio, the Stan Getz Quartet and the Miles Davis Quintet. On April 8, 1960 these giants of Jazz gave a memorable concert at the Kongresshaus in Zurich. This Volume (30) contains the concert of the Oscar Peterson Trio. This was the peak time of this trio and the Zurich concert shows this clearly. Oscar is in great shape and the rhythm section the best there was. Also the recording/sound quality is extraordinary considering the year it was recorded and the fact that it was a live recording down to 2 track.
The last concert of the same evening (Miles Davis TCB 02312 – ready for release as of early July) will follow this CD shortly. An indepth monographie about the Zurich concerts of these 3 giants will be published in 2013 by Edition Olms and is written by Olivier Senn of the University Lucerne, Jazz department.
