For All We Know Peterson Oscar 1986
Oscar Peterson is joined by vibes player Milt Jackson during the First Bern International Jazz Festival in 1986. Oscar's trio has Niels Perersen on bass and Martin Drew on drums.
Milt Jackson (1923 -- 1999) was an American jazz vibraphonist and one of the most important figures in the hard bop style. A very expressive player, Jackson differentiated himself from other vibraphonists in his attention to variations of dynamics and rhythm. He was particularly fond of the 12-bar blues at slow tempos. He preferred to set the vibraphone's oscillator to a low 3.3 revolutions per second (as opposed to Lionel Hampton's speed of 10 revolutions per second) for a more subtle vibrato.
In 1951 Jackson started the Modern Jazz Quartet.
