Oscar Peterson + Harry Edison + Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson is an album by the jazz pianist Oscar Peterson accompanied by trumpeters Harry "Sweets" Edison and the alto saxophonist Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson that was recorded in 1986.[2]


The album was reviewed by Steve Hecox in Option magazine who was of the opinion that the album was "Yet another Norman Granz "let's put these guys together and see what happens" session."[3] Hecox felt that the results were successful as they played to the performer's strengths with Peterson using his usual reliable three-piece rhythm section, and Eddie Vinson providing an instrumental session in which he stuck to alto sax.[3]
