I found this in a store for 8 or 10 bucks within a year before Bluiett passed.  I am finally making my way through a full listen.  Talk about tone!

Well captured baritone, right? 

There was a more affordable NM copy of the India Navigation set on Discogs a couple of months ago, but the seller would not ship to Europe. Even then, import taxes can kill you if a seller does not know how to or isn't willing to help get(ting) your item through customs. This seller does and is reliable in his grading. I couldn't pass this up after having searched so long. And of course I have had a FLAC copy on my hard drive for ages, so I knew the money would be well spent.

I wouldn´t say I´m a big Oscar Peterson fan, but this album has a special meaning to me. A friend of mine at high school had it when I was just starting to listen to jazz. See, Oscar Peterson was something that people dug who otherwise didn´t listen to jazz .

But later, just a few years ago I bought the CD just for historical reasons, since I liked it so much when I was still a boy.

 

And I want to say, I like THIS, and "Nighttrain" best. I don´t usually listen much to Peterson, but what I like on those albums is that Mr. Peterson doesn´t "overdo" the stuff. He had a helluva technique, but this here is really a beauty, nice spare piano, things that I can dig after a day of hard work when I maybe dont want to "figure out" heavier stuff like Mingus or Trane or whatever......

"Something that people dug who otherwise didn't listen to jazz". An interesting topic. I have also come across this in the case of Peterson, as well as Kind of Blue. Any more? Perhaps we should have a topic on this.

Re Peterson, I understand your misgivings. I prefer him in piano, guitar, bass format with Kessel and Brown in the early 50s before technique ran away with him.

Who knows or cares what brings people to jazz. It does not matter. There's no reason you can't dive straight into the more far out stuff. I hate these proposed itineraries for the inexperienced listener.

Jan Garbarek's playing is a hit-or-miss proposition for me -- but I love Dansere. ... Bobo Stenson, on the other hand, always sounds good to this listener.

ECM classic .... the album cover art mirrors the session's mood perfectly ....
