Recorded on 28 January 1946, Jazz At The Philharmonic Volume II captured the historic concert featuring Charlie Parker, Lester Young and other jazz titans. In September 1945 Billboard announced that Norman Granz was negotiating to undertake a full blown coast-to-coast tour with his Jazz At The Philharmonic touring package. Billboard reported that Granz would emcee the whole affair, with the tour finishing up in New York playing Carnegie Hall – live jazz was taking on a whole new dimension. Putting a tour like this on the road was a challenge and Granz had little experience – he had just turned twenty-seven years old. Before heading out of town, JATP gave a concert at the Philharmonic Auditorium in Los Angeles on 26 November. In 1950 Mercury released three 78s in an album they called Jazz at The Philharmonic, Vol. II from the 28 January 1946 Los Angeles concert.

Jazz at the Philharmonic, or JATP (1944–1983), was the title of a series of jazz concerts, tours and recordings produced by Norman Granz.

Both Montreux and JATP were the brainchildren of Norman Granz, the jazz enthusiast and music business impresario also responsible for founding the prolific Clef, Norgram, Down Home, Verve and Pablo labels. The two discs considered here are fruits of JATP's European concert series in the early 1950s. Oscar Peterson & Ella Fitzgerald Swiss Radio Days Jazz Series Volume 15: JATP Lausanne, 1953 TCB 2003. Swiss Radio Days Jazz Series Volume 15 captures the two performing with JATP in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1953. Both artists are in their salad days on this recording, their music fresh and spontaneous. From the same JATP concert which produced the Peterson and Fitzgerald album comes this Peterson & Friends set. The personnel expands to include alto saxophonist Willie Smith, guitarist Barney Kessel and an appearance on drums by Gene Krupa.
