The group that Oscar Peterson led between 1953-58 with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown was one of the great piano trios of all time. This live double-CD from 1955 has previously unreleased (and unknown) performances of 31 songs (28 standards plus three of Peterson's originals) that were released for the first time in 1994. The pianist is often in typically miraculous form, Ellis (whether playing harmonies, offering short solos or getting his guitar to sound like a conga by tapping it percussively) proves to be a perfect partner, and Brown's subtle but sometimes telepathic contributions should not be overlooked either.

The music on Oscar Peterson Trio Plus One is full of life and excitement. This straight-ahead set of standards and Peterson and Terry originals is simply a joy to listen to. The songs rhythmic foundation is straightforward and rock-solid, characterized by Ray Brown’s thumping, creative walking lines, and Ed Thigpen’s swinging bop drumming.

The fastest tunes on the album clearly illustrate the masterful playing of the soloists.
