Bio


Groundbreaking in concept, this recording is also of stunning quality, representing the excellence with which Oscar Peterson is always associated. Tremendous care was taken to fully capture the outstanding performances of these great artists and the magnificent sound of Peterson’s Bösendorfer Imperial.

Among this all-highlights collection:

Michel Legrand, a three-time Academy Award winner, shows his masterful touch and deep harmonic sense on his premiere performance of Peterson’s Dream Of Me and the hauntingly mystical Harcourt Nights.

Ramsey Lewis takes us on a rhapsodic exploration of motifs and themes in the previously unrecorded ballad, If I Love Again, and in Peterson’s classic Laurentide Waltz from his famous Canadiana Suite.

Gerald Clayton’s sensitive reading of Peterson’s Civil Rights anthem Hymn To Freedom is an unforgettable performance by a rising Jazz star – a triumph of technique and feel.

“…this recording, which easily ranks among the best of the year, overflows with such indelible tracks…but also the distinctive voice of the composer.” – H. Reich, Chicago Tribune

Jazz review: Various artists: Oscar, With Love   08.16.17

These tribute recordings show Oscar Peterson to be more of a romantic balladeer than his reputation for high-octane swinging might suggest. Give this intriguing set a listen and you many never hear Peterson in quite the same way again.
