Inside The Groove

Oscar Peterson's tribute to the late Nat King Cole.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This album was one of the very first tribute LPs dedicated to Nat “King” Cole, who passed away in early 1965 by lung cancer.

For young Oscar Peterson, Nat Cole was his idol - and interestingly when Oscar Peterson sings accompanied with his own piano, the sound resembles much with Nat King Cole. It is a well-known episode that Oscar Peterson didn't want to sing in his early era, because he sounded so much like Nat Cole, and he didn't get compared with Nat's voice.

It doesn't matter whether Oscar Peterson's singing heard here is better (or worse) than Nat King Cole or not. It's just a solemn tribute to his greatest idol Nat King Cole.

5 out of 12 tracks, Oscar Peterson's vocal is accompanied by large section featuring famous jazz musicians. Gorgeous sounds. The other 7 tracks features Oscar Peterson with guitar and bass, which reminds us of original Nat Cole Trio in the 1940s.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
