The Oscar Peterson Trio’s July 1961 live sessions at the Chicago London House are considered among their finest recordings. This CD contains the complete original album The Trio –Live from Chicago (Verve V6-8420), which was the first of four LPs culled from those dates. It features Peterson with Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums. Further titles from the same sessions have been added as a bonus.
