His name was Oscar Pettiford but his friends called him OP. He changed the way the double bass is heard and played. He made the bass a genuine solo instrument and was the first to incorporate the cello into jazz ensembles.  He played with Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, Errol Garner, Max Roach, Woody Herman, and Duke Ellington.

Oscar Pettiford died in 1960 in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the age of only 37, which is not an acceptable reason for the fact that his music and playing are not on many lips these days. Oscar Pettiford was taken away from us way too soon, but his music lives on. Therefore Turtle Records is very pleased to be able to present Tony Overwater’s personal and contemporary tribute to both OP’s playing and compositions with Maarten Ornstein, Wim Kegel, Ernst Reijseger and Ack Van Rooyen.

Production Notes

As DSD recording was in it’s early stages during this production a prototype MOD (Magneto Optical Disc) recorder by Augan was used. This technique was able to store the raw DSD data coming from the prototype dCS AD/DA converters. An offline rendering process to perform the edits was custom made by the team of Philips NatLab Eindhoven inspired by a so-called EDL (edit Decision List).

The edits themselves were processed at 176,4 kHz 24 bits and the EDL was used to gather the untouched DSD data.

Several of the early Turtle Records productions were recently remastered from the original DSD recordings, but this particular one is straight from the Philips master.

Press reviews

Amazon.Com 5 out of 5

A supreme recording. Surely the best version of Bohemia After Dark. Splendid sound engineering. A variety of clever arrangement and assured, unhurried solos by thoughtful improvisers. Rarely (in Jazz) do so many musical virtues come together in one session.

Don’t miss this one!
