THE SUNDAY CONCERT: JAZZ AT THE PHILARMONIC 1957 OSCAR PETERSON TRIO + ELLA FITZGERALD

Today´s concert is one of World of Jazz (on You Tube) great collection.

A great testament to a  golden time. The full concert of The Oscar Peterson Trio with Ella Fitzgerald, from the ‘Jazz at the Philharmonic’ tour 1957 (this recording is from May 5, 1957) in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, in the Netherlands.

The concert is introduced by Norman Granz himself. First he introduces the Oscar Peterson Trio with Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. Later they are joined by Joe Jones on drums and Roy Eldridge on trumpet. Half way the concert Stuff Smith joins on violin. Finally, Ella Fitzgerald joins in, with Don Abney on piano.

Enjoy!

Until next time!
