It's tight, comforting, consistent and it seems to pride itself in not going anywhere, still, I kind of wish it did. Either way, it's essential math rock, or at the very least an exquisite entry point to the genre.

If you put four or five tracks together you might get a song.

All the "Oscar Peterson Plays series" are a treat for the ears. His take on all those classic tunes are a mandatory listen. Even on the less memorable songs his playing is absolute bliss. He did those, besides Cole Porter, with Jerome Kern, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Harold Arlen and Irving Berlin. I can't ask for more. This one right here is probably my favourite of them all, probably due to sentimental reasons. The music is solid all around.

Could this be the closest Mingus got to be like Duke Ellington? It's got an irresistible swing to all of it. Undervalued for being old themes released right after The Black Saint, this sounds majestic without trying too hard. At times it feels like everything third stream was meant to be. Fun, heart-felt love letter to jazz itself.
