With powerful swing and pyrotechnic virtuosity, Oscar Peterson was a great genius of the piano. On these recordings, made between 1952 and 1956, the Canadian was accompanied by his faithful double bass player, Ray Brown, and two excellent guitarists, Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis. On the first disc, Peterson plays the repertoire of Count Basie with help from drummer Buddy Rich, followed by some of the great standard writers: Gershwin, Ellington, Arlen, Berlin... The second disc features some of his most impressive live trio recordings on which his abiding love for the stage is made clear. Piano pour pianiste is fascinating with its immaculate rhythms and every phrase imbued with beautiful harmonic poetry. Even (or especially) when it comes to the (occasionally somewhat hackneyed) standards, Oscar Peterson is able to carve out a fascinating swing that's all his own. Throughout this unmissable album, he preserves the heritage of his idols (the lyricism of Nat King Cole and the velocity of Art Tatum) with a high-flying refinement. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

MPS : 50 years of excellence in jazz

The jazz label MPS turns 50 this year. Andreas Brunner-Schwer, son of the founder Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, tells of the gatherings it brought together, and the label's first recordings; and what it is that makes the label so unique.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.
