Oscar Peterson - The Waltz I Blew for Yew (From The Personal Touch Vinyl LP)


From Oscar Peterson:

The music in this album is a tribute to some of my fellow Canadian artists, musicians, and composers. It's also different from my usual work in that I sing on many of the tracks 

In reviewing and selecting ma the album, I couldn't help realizing th tens haven't been dormant in the field music; on the contrary, they have inely successful and very aggressive. I w the wealth of material available, and sed that some of it was indeed composed by Canadians For example, I thought "Sweethearts on Parade" was an old jazz tune. (Roy Eldridge taught me to play it years ago.) Only while assembling the album did I discover that this was written by Carmen Lombardo and would have been performed first by The Royal Canadians. 

Another asset was having Clark Terry join us on the album. And he has added a very special touch to our music, which was beautifully arranged by Rick Wilkins, who I consider to be one of the finest arrangers in the world.

Producer's Notes; Oscar Peterson is possibly better known in England and Japan than in Canada. Pity, but not unusual. History tells us repeatedly of the artist who is recognized and appreciated in foreign places long before his own.

I  do not own the copyright to the music, the recording and the photos.   This video is posted for educational use under Section 17 U.S. Code § 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use.

All posts are rendered in old school using restored vinyl LPs.  This channel does not use recordings from CDs.  As much as possible, I attempted to remove most of the pops and crackles from the original vinyl album.  Some remastering was applied to make the performance cut through within the confines of  the loudness wars.  

Hope you enjoy.
