THE LP NOSTALGIC MEMORIES APPEARS HERE IN ITS ENTIRETY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD. TWO TRACKS HAD NEVER BEFORE BEEN ISSUED ON CD!!

This release contains legendary pianist Oscar Peterson’s LP Nostalgic Memories (Clef Records MGC-695), presented here in its entirety for the first time ever on CD. As was common practice during the early ‘50s, it is not composed of a single session but of a series of selections from various dates with similar but not always the same personnel, covering the period from 1951 to 1954. Ray Brown is featured on all tracks (playing duets with Peterson on several numbers), along with guitarists Barney Kessel, Irving Ashby, and Herb Ellis. Twelve songs from the same sessions have been added as a bonus.

PERSONNEL:

  • OSCAR PETERSON, piano on all tracks plus:
