Oscar Peterson Plays Richard Rodgers

LP (Item 737007) Clef, 1954 — Condition: Very Good
With Ray Brown, Barney Kessel, and Herb Ellis.
(Mono black label Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light surface wear and aging.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

RCA, 1952. Very Good
Rare pre-Verve material from the great Oscar Peterson – a host of early tracks recorded for RCA in the 50s! If you think that Peterson only emerged fully-formed in the hands of Norman Granz during the 50s, then think again – because this work really shows a young player already hitting ...

Recital By Oscar Peterson
Clef, 1952/1954. Near Mint-
A great early example of the genius of mixing guitar with the piano of Oscar Peterson – a move that might have been inspired by the success of Ahmad Jamal, but which works equally well for Peterson's sound on the keys! The tracks here feature either Herb Ellis or Irving Ashby on guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Good Life
Pablo, 1973. Sealed
Oscar Peterson's living the vida bueno here – returning to the London House in Chicago, over a decade after his famous recording date in the early 60s – and working with a very different style overall! The tracks are long, and quite open – a great way to hear Peterson working out ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS/Prestige, 1969. Very Good
Mellow magic from Oscar Peterson – recorded for MPS during the mid 60s, but "secret sessions" that didn't get issued until later! The album features Oscar working some incredible wonders on the piano – working with either Sam Jones or Ray Brown on bass and Bob Durham or Louis ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1959. Very Good
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1950. Very Good
Early Norman Granz recordings of Oscar Peterson, released on Mercury in the pre-Verve years, and featuring Peterson playing solo, with Ray Brown on bass. Titles include "Oscar's Blues", "All the Things You Are", "Where Or When", and "They Didn't Believe Me". ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1961. Sealed Gatefold
Strong work from the Peterson Trio's London House gig in Chicago in 1961 – material that offers some slightly longer than usual takes on the group's sound, especially on a few numbers that really let Oscar open up on the keys! The group here is the legendary combo with Ed Thigpen on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
An unusual live date for Oscar Peterson – in that it wasn't actually officially recorded by Verve, but done by a fan and handed over to Norman Granz at a later date! Given that origin, though, the material is quite strong – recorded with an edge that's slightly earthier than usual for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+
Greart Verve-era trio work – with Teddy Wilson on piano – and either Aaron Bell or John Simmons on bass, and Buddy Rich or Denzil Best on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1954. Very Good
Mighty nice small combo work – with Tal Farlow on guitar, Joe Roland on vibes, and Hank Jones on piano! LP, Vinyl record album
