Sure, I give it some airplay, but initially with an explanation to the
listeners about the unusual processes involved.  It is still Oscar
Peterson's performance, and a good one at that.

Very interesting, from a technological standpoint all answers have said
nothing about the fact that the music is being played by a machine...  not
a human being.        So....... everyone OK with that?      Who's planning
to )or planning not to) give it airplay?   (and I'd  love to hear some
musicians chime in on this)
