Official Web Site :

@allmusic : Even when he wasn’t 100 percent, Peterson was a classic improviser, one of the finest musicians that jazz has ever produced. The pianist appeared on an enormous number of records through the years.

@last.fm : An important step in his career was joining impresario Norman Granz’s labels (especially Verve records) and Granz’s Jazz at the Philharmonic package, with which he was able to play with the major jazz artists of the time.
