Story

It was 9 p.m. on 10 February 1961 as Norman Granz took to the stage of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam to present one of the Oscar Peterson Trio’s most sensational concerts.

Waiting in the wings was his protégé, the artist he discovered purely by chance one night in 1949 while listening to the radio in a Montreal taxi, the man he would take to the very pinnacle of pianistic success. He was the man Granz presented that evening as the “Ineffable”. Certainly it can be said that Peterson played a hundred notes where other pianists may have used ten, but he gave each of these notes a life of its own, bringing a whole new dimension to the music. As only he could.

One of the Oscar Peterson Trio’s most sensational concerts.

The melodic purity and throb of the concert’s opening number, "Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise", overwhelm the listener. Before you know it, Peterson’s Latino homage to his friend Dizzy Gillespie transports you somewhere between Broadway and Rio.

Lacquers

The ultimate medium. Sublime and fleeting. Once in a lifetime.

The ultimate analog medium. A fascinating phenomenon only now mastered by a handful of skilled engravers, lacquer demonstrates exceptional physical properties, making it possible to capture even the most intricate nuance and texture of a recording. Cut from a single sheet of aluminium coated in nitrocellulose, lacquer is extremely fragile, and wears off as the recording is listened to.

A sublime and fleeting experience, to be savoured like a fine vintage or live concert.

Once in a lifetime. Few people have the privilege of experiencing this unique medium. The casing for these limited edition lacquers was entrusted to Philippe Atienza and Pierre Gerber, both Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. An exquisite piece of craftsmanship.
