In the s and s he recorded several albums accompanied by a combo for Telarc. He made a decision: to record the orchestra now and to overdub Oscar's part in Villingen on the piano Oscar liked.

Brunner lived just long enough to father two sons, Hans Georg, born a little less than two years after Oscar Peterson, on July 21, and Herman, who arrived two years later. Oscar and Hans Georg listened to hours of the tapes they had accumulated, selecting not the best of the material but the best that was not covered by the Mercury contract.
