The concept of the rhythm section in jazz has been founded on the assumption that in groups of two or more players if the time is to be kept straight and honest it is necessary to have one or all of the following: drums, bass, guitar. But a few players come with the time built in and can break the rules. Two of the few are Oscar Peterson and Milt Jackson, who prove here that it is possible to operate from an internal rhythmic pulse and swing just as hard as if a rhythm section were present. Further, they create melodic and harmonic beauties with none of the collisions or confusions suggested by the sonic similarities of vibes and piano, even in the intertwining lines of “Reunion Blues.”
