Con Alma: The Oscar Peterson Trio – Live In Lugano, 1964
The legendary discography of Oscar Peterson continues to grow with the new release of never-before-heard 1964 recording from his “classic” trio. Peterson’s trio with Ray Brown and Ed Thigpenis widely regarded as Peterson’s “classic trio,” considered by fans as the most popular and in-demand of his long and storied career (featured on releases such as 1963’s Night Train and 1964’s We Get Requests). Recorded during their creative peak in 1964 (5 years into their collaboration), this previously unheard and unreleased live performance is destined to become a fan favorite from the Oscar Peterson vaults.
Set to release physically and digitally, November 24th, 2023, this 6-track album includes standards such as Waltz for Debby & It Ain’t Necessarily So and a swinging version of If I Could Write A Book, fans of Peterson are in for a treat on this new release.
