This video is a perfect example of why Oscar Peterson is my favorite jazz pianist. He starts out by soloing for two and a half minutes before even going into the body of the song, and the rest of the video is pretty much him doing that with accompaniment. He manages to play a pure volume of notes on par with a bop player, but in more of a swing setting and style. I love how even when playing the melody of the refrain, he still can’t seem to resist throwing in little flourishes and things. Seeing him wipe his sweat away is also great, and it’s impressive that he manages to keep playing at such a rate with only one hand. Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums don’t have solos here, but they still swing along perfectly with Oscar.
