“As with so many artists, Peterson has been hampered in reputation by the very things that are most admired. For was there not more than a touch of Chopin in him as well, and does it not come out very clearly on this lovely set of Cole Porter tunes. As with Ella Fitzgerald, Cole Porter seems the ideal source for Peterson, an unparalleled alliance of verbal and musical dexterity that constantly challenges the improviser who hasto find musical equivalents for those glittering rhymes.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“Peterson’s rhythmic gift and his legendary touch are exquisite features of these performances. However, the most remarkable thing here is the irresistible swing displayed by this group, whose infectious energy brings new life to these well known songs. The chemistry of this trio gives the impression that behind the sounds there is just one single mind. This is a reference album.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
