Level of familiarity before listening
I’ve never heard of Oscar Peterson at all.
What I expected
A lot of the song titles have references to the blues, so I’ll guess this is a blues album.
What it was actually like
This was not a blues album. It was a jazz album, and it was the kind of jazz that is not so arhythmic as to be intolerable, but was definitely not melodic, danceable and enjoyable. I would not recommend it.
2/5: weak, but I was able to listen to the whole thing
