This 1970 session from Oscar Peterson and his trio is considered one of the high points of the pianist's career. Accompanied by Sam Jones on double bass and Bobby Durham on drums, Peterson delves into the world of bossa nova on tracks such as Triste by Antônio Carlos Jobim. The majority of the tunes here are standards but there is one Peterson original number entitled Nightingale.

At the beginning of this set Oscar Peterson so overwhelms the normally gentle 'Tristeza' that it almost becomes a parody. Fortunately the remainder of the bossa nova-flavored CD reissue is more tasteful and, even if Peterson is overly hyper in spots, he is able to bring out the beauty of such songs as George Gershwin's 'Porgy,' Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'Trieste' and 'Watch What Happens' in addition to stomping through the straightahead 'You Stepped out of a Dream'.
