LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

The fourth in the MPS reissue series of long unreleased late 60s recordings from the home of producer/engineer Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer finds Oscar Peterson in a glorious solo piano mode! All of the recordings in the series were from very relaxed, loose sessions that were some of Peterson's favorite of the time – and they're done in a mode that has Oscar playing loosely and soulfully throughout. Titles include "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Perdido", "Body And Soul", "Bye, Bye Blackbird", "Lulu's Back In Town", "Little Girl Blue", "Who Can I Turn To", "Take The 'A' Train" and more. (Pausa pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

With Respect To Nat
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well!

Saba/MPS (Germany), 1965. Very Good+
One of the most beautiful albums Friedrich Gulda ever recorded for MPS – a wonderful session that features key solo work from players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, JJ Johnson on trombone, and Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone sax!

Long Road To Freedom
MPS (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- 2LP
One of Gulda's more out efforts, and one that features mostly solo work, apart from a few other tracks with additional percussion by Klauss Weiss. The set includes a hilarious "Variations On Light My Fire", which Gulda had recorded earlier in a funkier version – plus other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rollin
MPS, 1981. Very Good+
Freddie Hubbard's definitely rolling on this great little set – rolling right back into acoustic jazz territory after a run of smoother soul sessions for bigger labels at the end of the 70s! The album's a live one, and it's a perfect example of the development of Hubbard's solo skills at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Truth!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good-
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album
