The Maharaja Plays The Cole Porter Songbook

If you are happy and you know it, play an Oscar Peterson album.

Feeling inspired by TR's "happy" post, I went looking for a "happy" jazz album and ended up with "Oscar Peterson Plays The Cole Porter Songbook".

Sure, Ella singing that great songbook will always be on my desert island album list, but this delightful little album by the "Maharaja" is very, very close to breaking into the list.

Free Napster has other Peterson albums, but you can look at the complete track list on Amazon and listen to samples.
