Abstract

"Lover" (Richard Rodgers) is from The Elevox Open Jazz Competition Grand Prize Album. This recording is in the grand old two-fisted (stride) jazz piano style of Art Tatum and my teacher, Oscar Peterson. Notice the musical quotes, a part of this tradition: at the opening, "Oh, Sweet Mystery of Life, at Last I've Found Thee!" and at the very end, the Mendelssohn "Wedding March".
