Hadn't heard the S. Getz record with O. Peterson trio for a long time. Listened in the car the other day and was knocked out (among all the rest) by the last cut, "Blues for Herky." I think it'd get my vote for one of the best blues performances by top flight jazz guys I've ever run across. Blues knuckleheads are always going on about how jazz guys can't play righteous blues--and I'm sure we all have a sense of what they mean by that (as well as how wrong they can be)--but this cut is just so down and funky and cool. I'd like to compile and burn a CD of great blues by jazz greats. Any other suggestions?
