  1. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    This thread is somewhat hostile. All I was after was the opinion of others on what they felt about O. P.'s playing.
  2. Buddy Terry R.I.P.

    RIP Mr. Terry.
  3. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    To borrow a few words from a great American, "Can't we all just get along?"
  4. Does Oscar Peterson get a bad rap?

    I’ve seen mention here as well as other places on the web, where people state that they’re not big fans of Oscar Peterson. “He plays too many notes”, etc. Does he get a bad rap? After all, he’s performed and recorded with all the greats of Jazz, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster and many others. Norman Granz featured Oscar Peterson in his first jazz at the Philharmonic tours back in the late 40s. I don’t mind his playing. In fact I kind of like it. How about the rest of you here?
  5. Ray Drummond Corner

    I saw Ray live back in October of this year with Barry Harris. Barry said while introducing him that “Ray hasn't performed or played much in the past year due to illness. Now he’s feeling better, expect to hear a lot more of him.”
  6. George Coleman's "The Quartet"

    Nice photo.
  7. Controversial Food Opinions

    Rice cakes taste like cardboard.
  8. Jimmy Smith on the BBC

    I have a recording of the Jimmy Smith Trio live on the BBC 1966-01-26. I did some googling but the content is not available in my country (US). Does anyone know if Jimmy Smith appeared on the program Jazz 625? I am trying to determine if this may be that program.
  9. A rare photo of Hank Mobley.

    This is the first I've seen of this photo. I would guess it is from the 1970's.
  10. Anyone know who is playing guitar and the two drummers might be?
  11. "Sound" The new Randy Weston Album coming February 24, 2018

    Solo piano. A lot of the lower register on the piano. Randy's use of the left hand gives him his unique sound. It is a live recording too. I like it, but I enjoy every session Randy issued during his life.
  12. Great Jazz names (apart from Thelonious Monk)

    Resurrect this thread. Tiny Grimes
  13. Does anyone remember the commercial with Jon Hendricks? I remember seeing it back in the 80s. I don’t remember what product he was pitching. I want to say the commercial was for butter or margarine.
