Tenderly (5:50)

Cover of The Oscar Peterson Trio Live at Zardi's (disc 2)

From The Oscar Peterson Trio Live at Zardi's (disc 2) and 78 other releases

The original version of Tenderly by Oscar Peterson was recorded in 1949 when he was a member of Norman Granz’s “Jazz At The Philharmonic”. All subsequent versions were based on loosely transcribed versions of the original. The original is great. The live audience lends a bit of atmosphere. It,s cool,it’s relaxed and it swings.At twentyfour years of age he was a very accomplished performer. He begins the performance with a flowery introduction to the main theme,as if to say “Look I can do this,no problem,but wait until you hear what,s coming” Immerse yourself in this,play it loud and get yourself a Scotch.
