Oscar Peterson & Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen • 15-07-1979 • World of Jazz

One of the best recordings I have heard from this Duo – that’s right DUO! Oscar and Niels are INSANE on this one.. one of the saddest day in my life Oscar suffered a stroke in 1993 and was out of work completely for two years but came back with his ‘right hand’ and ‘flamed’ the keys for many more years. HERE HE IS AT HIS PEAK!
