"With JATP Lausanne 1953, the Jazz at the Philharmonic musical idea was to present Swing-era jam sessions with some of the biggest jazz names in a concert setting. As the musicians get introduced onto the stage you can easily hear whom the audience came to hear: tenorman Lester Young and, of course, Peterson, who kicks off Ellington's "C Jam Blues" complete with the left- hand grunts that were a trademark of Ellington's approach. He finishes his short solo with two-fisted harmonized lines with a swinging, carefree quality that disguises the technical difficulty involved. Perhaps the best features for Peterson's playing on this CD are the two trio - Peterson, Smith and drummer Gene Krupa - numbers that end the program. "Tea for Two" and "Idaho" feature some of the most astonishing, yet good-humored playing ever heard from Peterson, who is inspired by this smal - All About Jazz
