DOWN BEAT original review: At The Stratford Shakespearean Festival

“That the Peterson trio is one of the best musical units in jazz has been accepted in most quarters for some time now. Until the appearance of this album, however, it has not been too easily demonstrated on disc. Here for the first time we have the boiling, bubbling, swinging beat that the group specializes in brought through onto disc. There should be more like this.” Ralph J. Gleason
