My mind can scarcely comprehend how easy Oscar Peterson makes this look.

Easy wasn’t a word that popped into my mind. 😊. All improvised. More talent displayed in that one solo than most artists show in a career.

I like the look that Oscar gives Barney when Niels and Barney set the tempo in the intro, “That’s how you want to do it? Ok, watch this.”

What an incredible performance. We’re fortunate it was recorded.

Now playing Steely Dan - Can’t Buy A Thrill.

You can’t un-see the background of the cover once you see it.

I really dig that Latin sound. Check out Pink Martini. We play that when we entertain on the deck. I particularly like that the lyrics are in French, because I don’t get as tired of lyrics I can’t understand.

I feel the same way about lyrics in foreign languages! I typically listen to instrumental music but find that I enjoy vocal music much more when it's just the nice sound of a voice rather than narrative information.
