Song of the Day: Joe Pass “Oleo”

Was reminded today of some of the great music that came out of Norman Granz’s Pablolabel, especially the Oscar Peterson material. These two musicians were two thirds of the Oscar Peterson Trio – Joe Pass (Passalaqua) on guitar and Niels Henning Oersted Pedersen (“NHOP”) on bass. Both of these guys are heroes of mine, both able to perform amazing feats of speed and dexterity and yet able to be sweet and lyrical, as well.
