Oscar Peterson Trio '73

Guitarist Joe Pass and bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen both play well on these live performances, but the reason to acquire this set is for the remarkable Oscar Peterson. The pianist brilliantly investigates several jazz styles on "Blues Etude" (including stride and boogie-woogie), plays exciting versions of his "Chicago Blues" and "Easy Listening Blues," tears into "Secret Love," and shows honest emotion on "Come Sunday." Peterson really flourished during his years with Norman Granz's Pablo label, and this was one of his finest recordings of the period.

I've D/L'd this twice and both times corrupt. I believe I have the correct password. Any suggestions? Thanks

Sorry, forgot to say which post. The Oscar Peterson Joe Pass, NHOP album. Downloaded it twice and both times it says corrupt. I believe I have the correct password that also goes with your other blog.

@deGallo: works fine with WinZip,...merci Mel for this album !

deGallo said...

Well, I've tried several zip programs and nothing seems to work. It now says wrong password. I have used the password for Mel's other blog in the past and it worked. Can anyone e-mail the PW to me at or post it in the comments at jazzy's place? Thanks

deGallo said...

Thank you for the PW Mel. What a great album this is and a wonderful blog!

Elena said...
