....the title is my own. Everything else is Petersons, who I recently discovered to be an amazing jazz pianist :D

This is the C:2 piece for the 09-010 Grade 6 Examination for Piano. This is the only exam song i'm uploading due to choking for the other two. Trust me, you DON'T want to hear me choke.

Historical Background: Oscar Peterson was a mid-late jazz pianist, specializing in the 50s and dying in 2007, having met jazz stars of the era, otherwise his contemporaries. He was also active in the field of jazz instruction, hence why he made a book which contained the exercise I have played. It is mainly of a blues style using triplets as a syncopated version of a chromatic arpeggio (something I made up. Go figure.) The bass is meant to be low and played legato to give a consistency in the background while the right hand dances around the keyboard with the triplets. Originally there were parts in this song that weren't swung, like I've played it, but in the end, the examiner was accepting of this change, which was good.
