In this Oscar Peterson Lesson, I am going to go over some of the blues licks and phrases he plays on C Jam Blues off the Night Train Album. Oscar Peterson is an amazing player to check out for both some very solid bebop and some awesome Blues. His ability to play blues on pretty much everything and get it to sound great is mind-blowing.
The examples in this video illustrate how Oscar Peterson used blues phrases and melodies and mixed those with bebop chromaticism and some very hip rhythm ideas.
