Royal Garden Blues – Count Basie Oscar Peterson 1974
After several solo pieces Oscar Peterson invites another pianist to join him. In his introduction Oscar states that this man has had a great influence on his playing. Who is it. No less than Count Basie
Oscar Peterson and Count Basie are backed up by bass player Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen. This was recorded in 1974 in Prague.
The film crew did a fantastic job. Can you imagine having a seat in a chair next to Oscar, count and Niels and be able to get the full impact of these magic jazz masters?
