Newstalgia Downbeat - The Oscar Peterson Trio - Live At The Hollywood Bowl - 1968.

Newstalgia Downbeat with The Oscar Peterson Trio, live at The Hollywood Bowl, recorded on August 3, 1968.

<strong>The Oscar Peterson Trio - sayin' it and playin' it.</strong>

The last Oscar Peterson Trio concert I put up wasn't that long ago and it came via the CBC Transcription service from a concert given in Montreal and broadcast by the CBC. This one has never seen the light of day. It's from a concert given on August 3rd 1968 at The Hollywood Bowl and Peterson is the opening act for Vikki Carr and headliner Duke Ellington, and I'll be offering those portions of the concert later on.

But this one is really nice and if you're a fan of Oscar Peterson, it's a must-have since it's never been available in any form before today. The legendary Peterson is in fine form and the sound is wonderful.

I figured as long as you're probably recovering from yesterday's festivities, you might want something that's not going to be too tough to take. And Oscar Peterson goes well with just about everything. Even hangovers.
