Oscar Peterson on Acid.



This is such a nice picture that I don't really care if it's done with Photohop or not. In the picture there is the legendary jazz pianist and composer Oscar Peterson rockin' with some classic Roland products; 'the sound of acid' TB-303, TR-606 drum machine and the maybe-not-quite-so-legendary HS-60 organ. This is how it should be done. I would so much like to hear what it would sound like if the pic was for real. And he looks so happy with the modern wonders of Japanese engineership.

The pic is stolen from the great Music Thing blog, which has a whole discussion going on about Peterson, analog synths and the classic electro of Shannon's "Let The Music Play". Much respect to them.

Dude, the version of Let the Music Play on Kriton Radio is NOT the original, it is some edit or remix. Whatever, it is amaaaazing, mate! Lovin' it!

And why is it that everytime I have visited NYC, which is unfortunately not too often lately, and been to a club there, at some point of the night the dj always plays that?!
