Oscar Peterson – We Get Requests


We Get Requests is a perfect example of Oscar Peterson’s remarkable two-sided appeal. Technically, the album is filled with above average melodic development and solid rhythmic blend, while the repertoire is a crowd-pleaser.
On this LP, the listener is treated to a tasteful mixing of current pop tunes, standards and originals. In We Get Requests, the Oscar Peterson Trio shows again why it is consistently at the top of polls taken among fans and musicians alike. Oscar, Ray and Ed have that rare ability to please the public with music that is of the highest quality. You can’t do much better than that.

When Jim Davis started producing records at Verve, he changed the company’s recording philosophy toward its most prolific instrumentalist. Where Norman Granz had produced countless Oscar Peterson albums dedicated to the popular song, Davis was more interested in making albums closer to how the Peterson trio sounded live. His first Peterson records were the legendary London House sessions. By the time of this album, there had been no personnel change in the trio for five years – so it is no surprise that the rapport among the musicians here is telepathic.
