3.0 out of 5 stars This is a personal opinion 1 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a lover of classical and full jazz pieces not musicals. There is nothing wrong with musicals, but they do not do things for me. I hoped that these would show more of the Oscar Peterson magic but they are not far enough away from the originals for my liking. As I said this is only a personal opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware, not for solo piano... 19 Mar 2013
By ricknyc - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own several of these Jazz transcription books. While they serve a purpose if you're studying jazz piano, they have very little practical performance use, since the transcriptions are of trio performance and thus omit the bass and drums. In short, they're not meant to work as solo piano pieces. I know there are some transcriptions out there of actual solo piano music by Oscar, and I'm determined to find them! (Unfortunately it's hard to tell what you're buying when you buy sheet music online, and real music stores are pretty much extinct!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal 2 April 2013
By Dewey Smith - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These transcriptions are difficult, but then they are transcriptions of Oscar Peterson's piano playing, so expect lots of arpeggios. At least some of the recorded versions were done as a trio, so as another reviewer noted they are not strictly piano solos; otherwise you will sound like Oscar Peterson --if you can match his finger speed over the keys!

5.0 out of 5 stars great transcriptions 17 Sep 2008
By J. Jenkins - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really loved this book and recommend it to everyone as a good, accurate, and packed set of piano transcriptions of oscar's piano-playing. Compared to others in this series, like the one of ellington, I think these versions are from earlier in his career, hence the playing is slightly simpler, less characteristic of oscar's later virtuosity. Nonetheless, when you consider how few of these jazz piano books there are available on the market, this is definitely another worth getting.

I'm particularly impressed with how many songs they pack into one book without apparently editing the solos excessively.
