This is a fabulous recording from 1985, which is the first DVD of Oscar Peterson, in colour, with a proper trio that you can buy. Neils Pederson is on bass and Martin Drew is on drums.
They play a mixture of standards and Peterson originals:
Blues Etude
Cakewalk
Caravan
Falling in love with Belle Province
Nigerian Marketplace
Perdido
A Salute to Bach
Skylark-My Foolish Heart
Who Can I Turn To
Yours Is My Heart Alone
Some of these are virtuoso shopwstoppers, but Peterson was always more than a great technician so there is some lovely ballad playing as well.
The DVD is region 0 and lasts 80 minutes. Having seen Oscar live in the 1980's, his shows were around this length, so you are probably getting the whole show on this DVD. The sound is good with 5.1 DD and DTS
