Like A Circle In A Spiral Thursday

Here's a wild gem on the Rhapsody Just Added list this week: The Windmills of Your Mind from the Oscar Peterson Trio. It's a regular six-foot wall of water headed straight for downtown. The track is from the 1970 record Walking The Line, featuring George Mraz on bass and Ray Price on drums. Oscar Peterson plays the piano like a marksman with a machine gun. He launches a hail of scattershot runs, but every single note hits home.

Other Oscar Peterson sessions from this period added this week are Motions and Emotions, Hello Herbie, Great Connection, and Tristeza on Piano.

For dessert, a track from Oscar Peterson's vocal album "With Respect To Nat."
