Album Review

Scott Yanow []

At the beginning of this set Oscar Peterson so overwhelms the normally gentle ''Tristeza'' that it almost becomes a parody. Fortunately, the remainder of the bossa nova-flavored LP is more tasteful. Even if Peterson is overly hyper in spots, he is able to bring out the beauty of such songs as George Gershwin's ''Porgy,'' Antonio Carlos Jobim's ''Trieste,'' and ''Watch What Happens,'' in addition to stomping through the straight-ahead ''You Stepped out of a Dream.''
