Album Remarks & Appraisals:

On his 16th birthday, Andrew Litton received a solo album of Oscar Peterson playing his own jazz improvisations. Gobsmacked, he began collecting all of Peterson's recordings. Coming across transcriptions of Peterson's improvisations, he then began collecting and learning them himself. Now, in tribute to his hero, Mr. Litton has recorded his own performances of some of these transcriptions, including Monk's 'Round Midnight, Billy Strayhorn's Take the 'A' Train and Thad Jones' A Child Is Born.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
Ballads predominate, providing ample scope for embellishment...this disc is less about jazz's sound of surprise than sheer delight in dazzlement.
