Presented here is the complete session from the original 1952 album The President Plays with the Oscar Peterson Trio (Norgran MG N-1054/Verve MGV-8144), reuniting the legendary Lester Young with an Oscar Peterson formation that was, in fact, a quartet, with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and J.C. Heard on drums. Some tunes from the same session originally issued separately and two bonus tracks with Lester and Oscar playing five years later have been added here. In addition to the superb music contained, these sessions include two oddities: on “Two to Tango” Lester Young sings, and on one of the bonus tracks, “St. Tropez,” he plays the clarinet.
New York, November 28, 1952.
