It is 9 p.m. on February 10, 1961, when Norman Granz takes the stage of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw to present one of the most sensational concerts of the Oscar Peterson Trio. Norman Granz is the greatest impesario and producer in the history of Jazz. Behind the scenes is his protégé, the one he discovered by chance one night in 1949 on the radio of a Montreal taxi, the one he would lead to the top of the pianists. The one he presents that evening as "the Ineffable". It can be said that Peterson plays 100 notes when others play 10, but this virtuosity is not disturbing when it is so perfectly placed in the service of music. The fluidity of the first notes of the introduction sets the tone for an exceptional concert... This is the first release of this recording.
