I found a young gal (10milesfromnowhere) playing this piece here on MySpace. She did a fine job. I wanted to write her some tips, however, I think another video is more descriptive. I'm reading the same music from the Oscar Peterson transcription book. Although I haven't worked this one up to performance caliber, it's a quick try. Years ago, I recorded a CD called "A Musical Tribute to Oscar Peterson and Fats Waller". Even recorded with Ed Thigpen 3 times. So playing Oscar material is right up my alley. My website is www.jimmartinez.com and myspace.com/jazzpraise. Check it out if you like church hymns with a flavor of Oscar and Brubeck.
