    Difficulty Level:
  • January 06, 2011 Great for intermediate players looking to improve

    I started playing from this book about a year ago as an intermediate level player striving to get to the late intermediate/early advanced level for jazz and found this book extremely useful. It was just beyond my skill level at first, but really helped me improve. I agree with...

    some of the previous reviews that the level varies somewhat from late intermediate to early advanced. Oscar clearly didn't go nuts on these pieces, but he also didn't sit down and explicitly arrange these for a particular level so there are riffs throughout that are beyond the stated SMP level 6. But that makes it a great book to use to pull yourself up to the next level. All in all, it's a very nice collection - I plan to work on many of the pieces over the next couple of years as part of my plan to steadily improve my jazz piano skills.

  • January 23, 2008 Oscar Peterson / Duke Ellington

    Very good value. Highly recommended. The level of difficulty of the transcriptions varies - some manageable for an intermediate player, and some challenging.

  • October 30, 2007 PetersonPlaysEllington (authentic transcriptions)

    I'm a beginning piano student so eventhough this material is really too difficult for me I purchased it anyway because I love Oscar Peterson's playing so much. I want to learn to play Night Train in particular. I have learned and memorized the first three pages of Night...

    Train and the transcription is identical to the recordings of Oscar I have playing this piece. This is a great motivator for an old retired guy like me who is trying to teach himself to play the piano.

    Difficulty Level:
  • June 20, 2006 Easier Oscar

    These transcriptions were easy to digest considering the fact that it is Oscar Peterson. He didn't go crazy in the solos so they are easier to play but still sound very good and will increase your improvisational vocab significantly. Oscar Peterson is a beast.

    Difficulty Level:
  • January 07, 2006 Playable Peterson for novices

    I was pleased to see the inclusion of Band Call, C-Jam Blues and Night Train from the widely acclaimed Night Train album. The remaining titles consist of piano transcriptions of the Peterson-Brown-Thigpen trio's steroephonic remakes of the early Ellington song book album originally recorded by Peterson...

    -Brown-Ellis. Peterson has gone on record saying he deliberately played in an uncharacteristically simple way in the composers series albums. Thus, these selections are especially easy to play. On the other hand these albums are well known not to be among Peterson's best. Thus, it might have been wiser when publishing these transcriptions to have included some alternative versions of the material in which he didn't restrict his formidable technique, such as Rockin in Rhythm from the Complete Young Oscar Peterson. (The reviewer studied classical piano through Toronto Conservatory Gr. 10, and has been a Peterson devotee for over 30 years.)
