Recorded at the private studio of Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in November, 1970

This fine Oscar Peterson date from 1970 features a trio rounded out by bassist George Mraz and drummer Ray Price. Peterson has always excelled in the trio format, and „Walking the Line“ is no exception.
As fans know, Peterson is a dazzling technician, turning out a blinding flurry of notes one minute ('Just Friends'), then coming back the next with a ballad exquisite enough to break your heart ('Once Upon a Summertime'). Fluent in blues, hard bop, swing, and post-bop, Peterson's approach can range from dramatic to extremely delicate.
All these facets are on display on „Walking the Line“ (bolstered by the sensitive interplay of Price and Mraz), making this one of the best dates of Peterson's late-'60s/early-'70s period. Remastered sound makes it that much more enjoyable…

Oscar Peterson's series of recordings for Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer during the 1960s and early '70s are one of many high points in his long career. With George "Jiri" Mraz on bass and Ray Price on drums, Peterson's flashy romp through "I Love You" (complete with a humorous detour into the opera "Pagliacci") and mid-tempo walk through "All of You" salute Cole Porter in style on Walking the Line. "Rock of Ages" isn't the old hymn but a lively, gospel-inflected Peterson original that will easily get any congregation swinging and swaying to the music. His mastery of the ballad form is heard in his sensitive interpretation of "Once Upon a Summertime," which showcases Mraz's gorgeous tone, as Price sits out this one. --AllMusic Review by Ken Dryden
