Oscar Peterson Verve Trio Mosaic set on the horizon

30 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Just a note to get the discussion going on a forthcoming Mosaic set with all the Oscar Peterson Verve Trio's with Herb Ellis. Sceduled for later this year. Will post more details when they are mailed to me by MC.

Correction: It's 1951 to '53. All the sessions with Barney Kessel before Herb Ellis joined!

I wasn't that interested until your correction but now that actually sounds quite good, can't get enough of Barney.

Yes, with Kessel it could be interesting enough... don't have much of the trio with Ellis (or the later one with Thigpen) and don't feel like buying much more than I have... but with Kessel - any idea how big that set would be? The bigger, the less likely I'll buy, I guess.

It's the 51 - 53 sessions with Kessel (one with Ashby and one with Alvin Stoller on drums). Not too chilly for you I hope, Lon!

I was just anticipating an OP bashing as we've had before.

There's a lot of good music here.

I'd settle for a Penzance Select, or even a Mikado Single.

Will it contain any live material taken from the '52 world tour of theirs?

Nope only studio material. It will be a 7 cd set and the release is set for october/november (so perfectly in time for under your christmas trees!!).

Sidewinder- i think you are misstaken, that would be a very slim Mosaic- but the complete Sadlers Wells edition would be great!

If they can make a Peterson Mosaic, why can't we at the very least get a Three Sounds Select or even a little itty bitty CD? :(

Because OP was a worldwide star for 50 years while the Three Sounds 'just' helped keep Blue Note afloat?

whenever i look in the jazz section in the cd-stores over here i get the impression that every second disc is an oscar peterson trio album ... :wacko:

There are actually many Clef/Verve albums that haven't been on CD.

Unfortunately I think several albums will be incompletely represented on this Mosaic set, since many 12" albums drew their material from different sessions in the 1951-54 period, some with Kessel and some without.

Is the world really lacking in Oscar Peterson releases?

Well, there's no Mosaic OP title, and I can see the appeal of having one. And this is a good choice of "theme" and the music that will be found on this set is bound to be quite nice. (What I know of the material is good!)
