r.i.p. Oscar Peterson - Hannover 1972 with Ben Webster

I've never been a huge fan, but I grew to like some of Oscar Peterson's music. Of course as a sideman he's on so many great albums, there's no way denying that many musicians have liked playing with him! Here's a radio broadcast in fairly good sound with one of those giants who often relied upon Peterson's service, the Frog, the big Ben Webster, from the early 1970s.

I took this off dime, but as I had to fix it I thought I'd not only re-encode the WAV files to FLAC again for my own use, but also do an MP3 @ 320 kbps version and post it here, as a little tribute to Oscar Peterson.
