Friday Morning Musical Interlude

Today's strange find. And if you work in an office, you can listen to it without people thinking you're too weird, unlike the music-type sounds that I usually play.

Joe Pass and Roy Clark Play Hank Williams

I will presume you know who Roy Clark is. You should know who Joe Pass is, especially if you heard him about 25 or 30 years before this.

Please sit through the annoying first 30 seconds of crowd noise and then listen to what Oscar Peterson (p), Joe Pass (g), and Niels Henning Oersted Pedersen (b) do, which is almost literally unbelievable. Beginning at 3:25, Oscar Peterson plays a solo in which you can't imagine anyone playing a faster bass line, just bafflingly quick left hand . . . and then the right comes in.
