Limited edition 180gram premium vinyl pressing Oscar Peterson (born in Montreal, Canada, on August 15, 1925; he passed away on December 23, 2007 at the age of 82) was convinced by jazz producer Norman Granz to travel to the United States in 1949, where he became one of the most featured musicians in the "Granz caravan", with respect to both studio recordings and as part of the touring Jazz at the Philharmonic group. Peterson recorded as an accompanist for many other stars, and as a leader. While most of his sessions were with his trio, the present album showcases him in piano-bass duets with Ray Brown and Major Holley. Although he had been recorded by Granz playing at Carnegie Hall on September 18, 1949 (the three tunes were eventually released), the March 1950 date with Ray Brown marks the pianist's first American studio recording, and Peterson's original, the first tune recorded at that session, was appropriately titled "Debut". On Side A & B1-B2: OSCAR PETERSON, piano RAY BROWN, bass New York, March 1950. On B3-B7: OSCAR PETERSON, piano MAJOR HOLLEY, bass New York, May 8, 1950. Original sessions produced by Norman Granz.
