Oscar Peterson Quartet Vol 2 - 10" LP
Clef / EMI Columbia Records 33C 9025 (UK), 1954
This 10" album is the companion album to 'Oscar Peterson Quartet', Clef MGC 116, released in 1952, and it was recorded at the same date, December 1951, in Los Angeles. The quartet consists of Oscar Peterson, piano, with long-time collaborators Barney Kessel, guitar; Ray Brown, bass; and Alvin Stoller, drums. As it's a 10" album, they present extended versions of only two selections, the Gershwins' "Oh, Lady Be Good" (12:14), and Heyman, Green & Sour's "Body And Soul" (11:58). This band swings like the clappers!
