I'm listening to Oscar Peterson's History of an Artist on Pablo thinking what fun this stuff is. Easy, cool but up beat, maybe not avant garde but damn if it isn't toe tappin' music. Miles is great stuff, but sooo serious. Brubeck can be playful at times, Sonny R sometimes.
Who brings a smile to your face and movement to your feet?
Oscar has great drive and pace and is always fun to listen to. Follow him around in combination with some other greats:
Ben Webster Quintet Soulville or Oscar Peterson Meets Ben Webster
Very Tall - Oscar Peterson with Milt Jackson
Jazz Giants '58 - (Stan Gets, Sweets Edison, Herb Ellis plus the Oscar Peterson Trio)
Oscar backing Billie Holiday on "Recital" and a few others.
Ella and Oscar
Dozens of others, those are just a few of my favorite records featuring Oscar.
