Who Knows Oscar Peterson?

Wed Dec 19, 2001 11:22 pm

I'm just listening to one of his CD's, the one is recorded in the 60's, I think. It's just crazy what this guy plays on his piano! Unbelievable!
I play piano too, so I also listen to it with some kind of "technical" interest.
I don't know anything about him, how old is he now? Is he still playing life?

BTW, for those who don't know him, he plays jazz.

I have one record of him.
I don't think he's still alive, but I really don't know in fact.

I love Oscar Peterson!! I grew up listening to the 'Night Train' album. Also, the collaboration he did with Ben Webster is one of the best jazz recordings ever made.  Big thumbs up

Sebolino, he's definitely not dead. I met him around this time last year at a party in Los Angeles (he sure has an appetite for satay!!)

I didn't realize he is still alive -- he must be very old. My former apartment manager (in Vancouver, in the 70's) supposedly knew him when they were both young men in Montreal -- where Oscar is supposedly from.

Cheers,

What I like about the Oscar Peterson Trio is that they play popular Broadway hits from shows like My Fair Lady and Oklahoma!
