Oscar Peterson - The Jazz Legend

09 Thu May 2013

OSCAR PETERSON-THE JAZZ LEGEND AND THE MAN I KNEW
In 1990, Composer and Producer Lance Anderson met and worked with Canadian Jazz legend – Oscar Peterson. In anecdotes, personal stories, music and a little history, Lance tells the story of their meeting, friendship and what it meant to be around a genius and what being a jazz genius is all about – what jazz is all about. Lance will play compositions written by Oscar including selections from his Canadiana Suite and the world famous “Hymn to Freedom”.It is a night of wonderful music from the greatest Canadian Jazz musician, performed by someone who knew him intimately. This is a rare insight into the artist, the legend and the man behind the virtuoso. It is a backstage look at the life and times of a Canadian Music Hall of Fame member, by a producer and master composer of jazz and blues. This is an inspiring and moving tribute by a musician who went from being in awe of a genius to being touched by the man. Lance Anderson – Piano Russ Boswell – Acoustic Bass
