Here is another very tasty Oscar Peterson lick. Again, very diatonic except for the b9 over the F7 chord. It’s his use of rhythm and swing with some nuances that makes all of his lines so great. He loves to use triplets as well. If you notice in the video there is a slight delay with the grace note too. Try and get the feeling of this delay to capture the essence of the line, as adding delays in the rhythm can add to the phrasing of your line. Enjoy!
