Description
Nearly four decades after recording Very Tall, the same group got together for a "thoroughly satisfying" (Penguin Guide) live show at the Blue Note. This seven-song sampling from that set opens with the rhythmic and upbeat "Squatty Roo," a playful number that rides along the seemingly effortless counterpoint set up by Peterson and Jackson. Equally lighthearted is "Salt Peanuts," showcasing Jackson's blurring dexterity on vibes, underscored by Brown's subtle bottom line. "If I Should Lose You" and "Soft Winds" follow a more mellow groove, while the midtempo "The More I See You" brings the soloing prowess of all three players to the fore. "Any time musicians of the caliber of Peterson, Jackson and Brown convene, it is a special event," wrote Ira Gitler in Jazz Times about the 1998 Blue Note performances. "An edge of anticipation was in the air, fueled by a sense of history and, of course, the talent in the house."

"Nothing less than sublime…. On the Dizzy Gillespie standard 'Salt Peanuts,' Jackson is particularly sparkling, and Peterson makes the most of Lester Young's simple, unhurried 'Ad Lib Blues.' But when the quartet is locked into a groove together, as on 'Limehouse Blues' and 'The More I See You,' that's when the specialness of this rare occasion is made clear once again."—All Music Guide
