This long-out-of-print LP featuring the brilliant clarinetist Buddy De Franco with the Oscar Peterson Quartet (Peterson’s trio plus drummer Louie Bellson) presents all standards. De Franco and Peterson produce plenty of fireworks with the majority of the numbers being taken up-tempo. De Franco sounds flawless on clarinet, making it sound so easy to play lightning-fast runs; few other clarinetists have ever come close. The final selection, a very long and extremely up- tempo version of “Lullaby in Rhythm,” has the same five musicians plus trombonist Bill Harris, tenor saxophonist Flip Phillips, and both Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie on trumpets.
