Marian McPartland writes:

"The combination of a CD-ROM with a companion Book and CD of Oscar Peterson's music will be irresistible to music lovers and students alike; it has something for everybody. One can open the numerous files on the CD-ROM for study, and listen to the music as well, or just sit back and enjoy the CD. There are 18 of Oscar's own compositions to listen to and absorb. For anyone wanting to know more about Oscar Peterson's creative world, nothing could be more perfect than this musical bonanza."
