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

3 great musicians, having a really good time together, listen carefully and enjoy

enthusiasm noted

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.
