Song of the Day – “C Jam Blues” – Oscar Peterson

Peterson was a great jazz pianist, shown here with his trio – Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums.

The tune is a standard composed by Duke Ellington.

Recording engineers had a chore when recording Peterson, because he couldn’t help but scat while playing, and the piano microphone always picked up at least part of his singing, even in the studio.

    Thanks for blogging this, the playing is fluid and moving, and the interplay between the three of them is almost unbelievable. i love it so much, I think I will re-blog it and share it.
