I think that this track was OSCAR saying watch me lock the orchestra out by purely music. Quite a feat to achieve. Genius. If you got it.

just want to say that "improvisation" is a murky word for me, but this IS a GREAT video to introduce people to a trio that is beyond imagination for most people... SO SOLID. truly great. Perhaps you might do a video on the subject of improv, how it is developed and instituted in playing. I am certain you are aware of the broader signification of the word improvisation but for MANY people they believe it is just inventing on the fly when in reality it is NOT. There is practice and thinking that is CRUCIAL BEFORE ANY improvisation on this level.

I guess this is something where you have to be a musician to appreciate because to me it's simply not interesting music. I get that it might be impressively done but I just don't find any pleasure in listening to it.

Can I paraphrase Liar Liar. I have heard better. There is an "illegal in how many States and the surname Craine/Crane" subtext. But seriously folks - and Rick Beato - the greatest solo I heard of all my time hearing - so far. Oscar Peterson. Et al R.I.P.

My dad was also a huge Oscar fan and I listened to a lot of his music when I was very young. When I was about 12, I ended up in the hospital for a couple of weeks and shared a room with an old guy from Montreal. He was Oscar's piano teacher when he was young and was so happy that a 12 year old was an Oscar fan. I was so impressed to meet his teacher.

My dad also turned me on to Oscar when I was young and I ended up becoming a jazz pianist myself. Your enthusiasm Rick has brought back the magic of those early musical experiences - thank you and keep up the great work you're doing on behalf of music, musicians, and fans. Brilliant!

No idea why I've never heard of this Oscar solo...holy crap!!! How the HELL is it that NO ONE in that audience went flying out of their seats as soon as the last note was played?? If I'd been there, I think I would've jumped up with such force that they'd only see my feet dangling through a hole in the ceiling!!

I clicked on this thinking it would be some killer guitar solo. The thing is, I’m 3 months into learning piano and my mind is completely blown! Thank you so much for this Rick! Now I know about Oscar because of you.

Rick I grew up east of you in Schenectady. My pop was into bebop also and his fave player was Charlie Parker. He LOVED Bird! As you know Autumn in New York is lovely and so is that song with Bird on alto sax, Mitch Miller on oboe, Ray Brown on bass and Buddy Rich on drums. Takes me right back to NY this time of year!

Keith Emerson was the greatest (IMO) rock keyboardist of the 20th century... But Oscar was THE GREATEST overall. RIP both of you!

this is great stuff in that it is informative, in-depth, and illustrative about Jazz, a musical art form that must never die. And it's video about a great musician, among great musicians. I would not argue against this being the greatest jazz solo of all time.

my side story- I could have executed about 65% of this performance when I was in my hey day as a piano player as a youth. I was never a professional musician, but studied piano with Alan Swain in Evanston Illinois. My dad played bass with Denny Zeitlin, when Denny was a young man. I worked at Ravinia and was allowed to do a sound check on the Bosendorfer before Oscar's concert in the summer of 1984.

Music is very subjective. While I'll agree this guy is talented, I'll also say it's not enjoyable whatsoever for me to listen to. There are many genres for a reason. To call this the best of anything is purely subjective.

I love it. Oscar was pretty much my introduction to not only jazz, but what it is to experience musical genius - when I was about 14 yrs old. He has had a massive impact on me. This video is awesome - it reminds me that there are so many people deeply affected by Oscar the same was I was (and still am..) Mindboggling!

I listen to Peterson on rate occasion because his playing (pardon me) is just so fkin insane that I can barely stop mentally and physically oohing and ahhing long enough to just sit and listen. Maybe the very best pianist ever.

I'm not into be-bop, blues, jazz and all that kind of music, it never crossed my life. That's no value judgement, it's just describing where I come from. I also never heard of Rick Beato. Just call me ignorant. Then I stumbled upon a video of him talking with my musical hero Brian May, analysing the genius of Freddie Mercury and the song 'Bohemian rhapsody'. Fascinating! From there I landed on this clip "The greatest solo of all time", expected a guitar solo and then heard and saw this!!!! Oscar Peterson was not an unfamiliar name to me, but what and how he played was! I'm absolutely flabbergasted by this solo and thank Rick for sharing his passion for it with the world ad now me!

Ronnie Scott's was a great jazz bar. The only problem was being in Britain, there was no air conditioning. When it was crowded, which it usually was, it was hot, humid and the music was fucking awesome! I missed Oscar Peterson but was there for Jimi Hendrix. Oh yeah!

The difference between a 1 4 5 blues rhythm played bee bop on guitar and rock n roll blues is astronomical. Im no jazz guy, but that raw example of Rick playing bee bop puts rock blues rhythm too shame.

It is a matter of taste, but IMHO Kenny Kirkland's solo on "Giant Steps" live has suprême spice. Lyle Mays on "Straight on Red" from the Travels album...tasty. Keith Jarrett on "Oleo" live.. And so on...

Staggering use of chromatics all over the changes. Rhythm and time sig variations on basic R&B themes. Like a music 'tag your it' one plays the other sits idle.

I would really be delighted of a musical analysis of the song "Suffering of the Stream" by And Also The Trees (although there are a lot of other candidates in their repertoire that kinda baffle me musically, the sleepers for instance for more recent ones). It's most likely not much the type of music you enjoy but I think they would be very interesting to analyse nonetheless. Really loved your analysis of Sting's modal composing, among many others :). Keep making amazing videos!

Why keeping making videos about jazz, when 99% of the general public finds jazz boring, repugnant, and unappealing? I remember playing a great jazz record for my friends and they said stuff like, "yeah, that's just 'jamming.' I don't like listening to someone who is 'jamming' because it's boring. They're getting enjoyment out of playing it, but I'm not getting any by listening to it." Analysis of pop tunes is more interesting because pop tunes are more pleasing and entertaining to the audience.

Bull! That so-called music of Oscar Peterson is nothin' compared to the brilliance of "nigga" this, "nigga" that and "muthafukka" of modern rap and hip hop.

Rick, thank you for this and for your wonderful enthusiasm and spot-on commentary/interpretation! This is undoubtedly THEE greatest solo of all time. And I don't even feel like I'm going out on a limb by saying the greatest playing, on any instrument, in any genre, by anyone, ever.

If you want more of Oscar, and there is plenty, I would recommend Indiana, I Can’t Get Started, a medley of I Loves You Porgy/Georgia and some others.

In all those years, audience still have not learned when not to clap. ClapCattle. Clapping while music plays, clapping when singers sing their tune, drowning out whatever is done. If there really is one of those idiots with an applause sign, shoot him, pl0x

See, the thing is, back in 1974 we were only into rock music so our fave keyboard players were Emerson, Wakeman, Lord etc. God this is shockingly good, wish I’d been into jazz at the time. Gonna get me some Oscar Peterson albums after this. Better late than never.

Check out Oscar Peterson live in Berlin, recorded in 85. About 30 minutes in he let's it rip with a solo only he could pull off. The production quality of the video and the musicianship on this recording is as good as it gets.
