  Resolved Question: Oscar Peterson Music -
If i could get only one Oscar Peterson CD, what would it be? I like mostly trio stuff, piano, bass, drums. it doesn't matter if there are slow songs or upbeat swing. Just gimme the best CD that encompasses his trio work thoroughly. Preferably not a "greatest hits".
