Boy, some real gems here tonight! We start off with Oscar Peterson and a great orchestra with songs from Nat “King” Cole. Oscar sings them all and he has a great voice!

Oscar Peterson Orchestra
“With Respect to Nat”
Limelight Records, 1965.
When my sugar walks down the street
It’s only a paper moon
Walkin’ my baby back home
Sweet Lorraine
Little girl
Gee baby ain’t I good to you
Orange colored sky
Straighten up and fly right
Calypso blues
What can I say after I say I’m sorry
Easy listening blues

Next up, one of my favorite Milt Jackson performances, here recorded live in 1965 at MoMA in NYC. James Moody on flute and other reeds, Ron Carter on bass, Cedar Walton, piano and Candy Finch on drums accompany my fave vibes player, Mr. Milt Jackson.

Milt Jackson

Limelight (1965)
The quota

We complete the show with a fine live set from 2003, Benny Green (Piano) and Russel Malone (Guitar). Mellow and sweet, as is the night!
