Alon Marcus Posted August 27, 2004 Report Share Posted August 27, 2004 (edited) I remember reading somewhere that Miles didn't like Oscar's playing. In his famous downbeat blindfold test Thelonious asks the way to the toilet when Leonard Feather puts Oscar on. blindfold test by monk My question is why? Do you agree with the giants in this case? Personally I like Peterson very much. Every recording he did before his stroke is a gem. It's true that his playing is flashy but he is fast and brilliant. So why Miles and Monk didn't like him? Have you heard other opinions about him (positive and negative)? Edited March 25, 2005 by Alon Marcus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
