As a straight-ahead bop pianist, Oscar Peterson was without peer, his miraculous touch bearing lightness and precision at once, but he always had musical appetites that stretched outside the bebop menu as well. On this 1963 recording he explores some of those urges, bringing his trio into the world of legendary arranger Nelson Riddle, where the latter's moody, impressionistic orchestrations back Peterson's highly melodic statements. The feel rarely moves beyond the pastoral, but the Peterson/Riddle combination brings a novel approach to standards like "My Foolish Heart" and "Someday My Prince Will Come."
