#37- A Window into Live Jazz: Oscar Peterson at the Stratford Shakespearean Festival
Oscar Peterson at the Stratford Shakespearean Festival is a 1956 live album by Oscar Peterson, accompanied by Ray Brown and Herb Ellis.
The Peterson trio is celebrated for their seemingly telepathic sense of interplay and its virtuosity. In listening to this album, Scott, Karl, and Trent discuss how certain kinds of creativity can’t be done in a premeditated way. Scott says, “It’s thoughtless and intuitive— pure creativity between three people.”
Karl adds, “It’s closer to what I think music is, which is an expression of spirit.”
