Oscar Peterson – L’impossible

5.00 out of 5
(1 customer review)


L’impossible is a beautiful composition written by Oscar Peterson. The tune is reminiscent of the music of Frédéric Chopin and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Oscar Peterson first recorded it in 1966 on his outstanding album “Blues Etude” and in 1983 on Quartet recording “If You Could See Me Now” featuring Joe Pass on guitar.

L’impossible has a nice flow, beautiful melody, nice harmonic structure, and bossa rhythm. After the head (main theme) Peterson goes right into his stylistic virtuoso double-time solo. This is a Head piano transcription, the solo isn’t included here. You can use the sheet music as a complete chart for piano solo or duo, trio or larger ensemble performances. I tried to pay attention to every little detail in the music. I also wrote here the chords for the head and solo section (page 3). The solo changes based on the later recording of the tune.
