    Personnel: Oscar Peterson (piano); Harry Edison (trumpet).
    Recorded at MGM Recording Studios, Los Angeles, California on December 21, 1974. Includes original release liner notes by Benny Green.
    The third of Oscar Peterson's five duet albums with great trumpeters (the other encounters feature Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, Clark Terry, and Jon Faddis) teams the masterful pianist with the great swing stylist Harry "Sweets" Edison. The trumpeter, who uses repetition to great degree and had pared his style down to a relatively few notes, matches well with the virtuosic Peterson on these seven standards and their two simple originals, "Basie" and "Signify." Together Edison and O.P. give the impression that their chance-taking improvisations are completely logical and a lot easier to play than they really are. ~ Scott Yanow
