    This is not a note-for-note transcription, and it is very simplified. I recommend finding a copy of the Note for Note edition. This is a rare rating for me, but it is not for you if you want full chords and nearly exactly like Oscar Peterson instead of...

    a simplified version.

  • December 18, 2005 "Transcriptions" don't match recording

    The inside cover states that the material was "transcribed from the original recording by Jack Jordan." I assume this means the album with the same title issued by Limelight/Polygram 1964. Main themes are accurately transcribed but no attempt at accuracy was made with the improvisations. The solos are grossly...

    over-simplified, and do not even come close to matching the recording. Fortunately, Place St. Henri, Hogtown Blues, & Blues of the Prairies have been faithfully transcribed elsewhere---see Miles Black's "Note for Note" transcriptions published by PG Music. I don't recommend buying Jordan's transcription of the Canadiana suite unless you're only interested in transcriptions of the main themes & you're content with developing your own improvisations based on them. Where I'm coming from: studied classical piano (Toronto Conservatory Gr.10). Peterson devotee for over 30 years.
