You have to have two more people (bass and another one), so these are not his solo works. But if this is what you are looking for, they are fine.
Great Book!!!!!!!
Good product XLNT service
This volume of transcriptions is well worth getting if you are a keen Jazz Pianist. Containing 19 transcriptions which will demand a lot of hard work to play them, even at 50% of the speed Oscar Peterson plays them.

All of Oscars improvisations are complete. So if these look a little daunting then playing through some of the tunes, such as his own wonderful composition 'Hymn To Freedom' may be a realistic starting objective, as these are much more playable. Because these are transcriptions from Trio recordings the solos (if you can play them) will sound a little empty because Oscar Peterson always had a bass player for these recordings. If you can find a like-minded bass player this will fill in the gaps.

At the back of the book is a list of the albums where you can hear the transcriptions. Its a shame they couldn't have provided a cd with the book - I would have happily paid more. Overall a marvellous collection, but you will need to practise a lot!
