Live in Denmark, 1964!
So cool how you can hear Peterson singing the melody to himself as he plays. It’s the straight brain-to-keys transmission. That’s incredible musicianship on display.
A lot of other pianists, when packing a lot of fast notes into a phrase, have a little trouble getting it all in perfectly and often come in just a tiny bit late for the next. Oscar Peterson always got everything done on time and never came in late for the next phrase. That’s just one little example of how great he was!
