Buy It If You Dare! It's worth it for the transcription of Stellar by Starlight alone! No wonder Duke Ellington once referred to Oscar Peterson as the "Maharajah of the keyboard!". The Very Best of Oscar Peterson The contents vary from moderate to difficult and this is not recommended for beginners. If you are really a good jazz pianist, I recommend Note for Note for Oscar Peterson, too.The print is very good and easily legible. If you can play Moanin', you should be able to do a decent job on most of the rest, especially Rockin' Chair.You can find all these pieces in mp3. "Incredible" according to Ryan G. Peters. I really wanted to learn a few Peterson licks on the piano that I can bust out once in awhile. This book contains accurate transcriptions of some of his hits and makes it easier for me to visualize what is going on. If you want to sit down and learn these songs note for note good luck!
