This release contains the rarely heard 1957 album Soft Sands(Verve), appearing here on CD for the first time ever. The LP showcases Peterson playing romantic ballads backed by the Buddy Bregman orchestra, and singing on four tunes in a style akin to Nat “King” Cole! As a bonus, we have included the complete trio album Plays My Fair Lady(Verve), and a live performance of John Lewis’ “The Golden Striker” that has also never previously appeared on CD.

“I like the way Oscar sings standards, and when I am of a mind to hear them in a pop groove, I wish he’d sing more often. You certainly can’t fault his time or intonation, nor at any occasion, his intelligence” Nat Hentoff (1957)
