Review by Scott Yanow
Pianist Oscar Peterson and violinist Stephane Grappelli meet up on this Scandinavian concert. The "backup" crew (guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Mickey Roker) is not too bad either. In addition to a closing blues (which is highlighted by tradeoffs from Peterson and Grappelli), the quintet performs five veteran standards with creativity and swing.
- "Nuages" (Jacques Larue, Django Reinhardt) – 8:18
- "How About You?" (Arthur Freed, Burton Lane) – 5:19
- "Someone to Watch Over Me" (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin) – 6:50
- "Makin' Whoopee" (Walter Donaldson, Gus Kahn) – 5:10
- "That's All" (Alan Brandt, Bob Haymes) – 7:33
- "Skol Blues" (Oscar Peterson) – 7:04
