Review

This 1979 meeting of Oscar Peterson with the ebullient French violinist Stephane Grappelli at a Danish jazz festival is a pure delight. Grappelli, whose unassuming virtuosity rivaled that of Peterson, takes a brilliant solo on Django Reinhardt's "Nuages" and trades hot licks with Peterson on "Skol Blues." They are joined by guitarist Joe Pass and bassist Niels Henning Orsted-Pedersen (who had recorded a trio album with Grappelli the day before), plus drummer Mickey Roker. With so much talent surrounding him, Peterson felt no need to take over the performance with his customary showers of notes. --Rick Mitchell
