Night Train

C Jam Blues – Oscar Peterson’s Solo

This is another early transcription I did, this time it’s of Oscar Peterson’s solo on the tune “C Jam Blues” from his fantastic trio album Night Train.  With backing by Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, this album seriously swings.  As the title suggests, the tune is a blues in C.  The first four solo chorus start out with a 4-bar break where bass and drums lay out.  The remaining choruses are straight ahead 12-bar blues form.  Enjoy!
