Oscar Peterson Trio - With Respect to Nat CD


( English version of the review is under Turkish one)

Bu sefer sizlerle Oscar Peterson'un usta Nat King Cole'ün sonsuzluğa gittiği 1965 yılında onun ansına yayımladığı albümü With Respect To Nat adlı albümü tanıtacağım. Bu albüm Pewterson'un ilk ve son kez şarkları aynı zamanda okuduğu bir albüm ve gerçekten parçaları yorumlaması harika, cidden içinden gelerek albümü yaptığı hemen anlaşılıyor.

Eğer dikkatlice dinlerseniz kimi zaman neredeyse sesinin  aynı Nat King Cole gibi parçalarda yer aldığını hissedebilirsiniz. Albümde yer alan parçaların buradaki düzenlemeleri ise yazılan en iyi düzenlemelerden bence.

Albümde büyük orkestra Manny Albam tarafından idare ediliyor ve önemli müzisyenler olaya el atmış. Saksafonda Phil Woods, piyanoda Hank Jones, tabii Oscar Peterson'da kimi parçalarda solo piyanoda, Richard Davis basta, Mel Lewis davulda ve ayrıca orjinal trio üyeleri Ray Brown bas ve Herb Ellis gitarda.

Oscar Peterson's "With Respect To Nat" is a novelty. It is the first ever and only Peterson album that spotlights his vocal flair. And the genius of jazz piano can sing! He's not only playing his favorite instrument here, but he is singing his heart out.

If you listen closely he really sounds like Nat King Cole with his remarkable interpretations of songs that Cole made his own. The arrangements are some of the best ever that were written for this material. Recorded and released in 1965 soon after the death of Cole, this album is Peterson's heartfelt tribute to the greatness of the legendary jazz singer/pianist.

He is backed by a Big Band conducted by Manny Albam with a winning team of great musicians such as Phil Woods (sax), Hank Jones (piano) and some tracks Oscar Peterson on piano, Richard Davis (bass), Mel Lewis (drums), among others. He also has the enduring support of his original sidemen, Ray Brown (bass) and Herb Ellis (guitar).
