2018 Japanese CD reissue.
This frequently exciting album has three lightly swinging performances by the Modern Jazz Quartet ("Now's the Time," "'Round Midnight" and "D & E Blues") and five from the Oscar Peterson Trio (which at the time consisted of the pianist/leader, guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown). While the MJQ sounds much more introverted than the exuberant Oscar Peterson Trio, the two popular groups have more similarities than differences.
