Frequent Rifftides correspondent Svetlana Ilicheva writes from Moscow:
I wonder if it is a well-known thing that Oscar Peterson sang? It was a great surprise to find this recording, not only for me but for some of my Facebook</em friends.
Nat Cole was one of Peterson’s primary piano influences. His effect on the younger man also extended to Peterson’s singing. In this 1965 album, Peterson paid tribute to Cole in both areas.
