Oscar Peterson - Easy Does It


Of all the masterpieces on the Verve label, "Night Train" is the one which so comfortably fits into a "mood slot" It's late at night. You have a bourbon on the rocks and another cigarette. The scent of someone special lingers, fanned by the half open book you never could quite finish. You feel mellow and replete. This is the record to go with your mood.

Someone called C.M-T played it for me, many years ago. We drank Eau de Vie and talked of life, and later in the morning light drove along the foothills of the Massif de la Chartreuse.

Not the sort of moment you can forget. Thank you, C.
