Overview

The widow of the unparalleled piano virtuoso put together this project, centering it around the thing Oscar loved most in the world: his prized personal Bösendorfer Imperial piano. Kelly Peterson invited a host of jazz luminaries to Oscar's home studio to shine a light on Oscar Peterson, composer (most of these pieces were written by Oscar and many were never recorded). You'll hear Oscar's pieces and his piano, too, under the hands of Chick Corea, Kenny Barron, Ramsey Lewis, Michel Legrand, Hiromi, Monty Alexander, Bill Charlap, Benny Green and more. This 2015 3-CD standard version now returns to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of Peterson's passing. This is special: "The Contessa," "Celine's Waltz," "Bossa Beguine," "If I Love Again," "Tranquille," "Morning," "Hymn to Freedom," "If You Only Knew," "Dream of Me," "Ballad for Benny Carter" and more including pieces written for Oscar by some of his closest friends in music.
