In 1961, pianist Oscar Peterson, vibraphonist Milt Jackson, and bassist Ray Brown (along with drummer Ed Thigpen) recorded the fine LP Very Tall. In 1998, the threesome got together - this time with the young Karriem Riggins on drums - to record a show at the Blue Note, resulting in the release of The Very Tall Band (Live At the Blue Note) the following year.

Karriem Riggins on drums is a delight too. He definitely adds to the ensemble and has awesome jazz chops. Ray Brown anchors the group with great bass playing. He has a seven and a half minute bass solo that very few bass players could carry off. He does it with ease. Very little is lost in Jackson's playing. The Very Tall band is a reference to the album they recorded in 1962 as "Very Tall The Oscar Peterson Trio with Milt Jackson", which incidentally is a fabulous album. So does this live up to the very high standards they set 36 years ago. Well the simple answer is no.
