All The Things You Are – Oscar Pettiford

This is the great bass virtuoso Oscar Petiford from 1959. Here he plays the cello pizzicato style in a jazz format. He was truly one of the greats of modern jazz. This tune is from the album “Vienna Blues: The Complete Sessions”. I was unable to upload the photo of that album cover so I used this one from his 1957 recording with a full orchestra. My apologies for that.

Lineup:

Oscar Petiford: Cello

Hans Koller: Tenor Sax

Jimmy Pratt: Drums

Attila Zoller: Bass
