The Music of Oscar Peterson
Jazz Unlimited for September 10, 2017 will be “The Music of Oscar Peterson.” Pianist Oscar Peterson is reputed to be the most recorded pianist in jazz. We will hear him with Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, Ed Thigpen, Ben Webster, Flip Phillips, Lester Young, Stan Getz & Lester Young, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Jazz At the Philharmonic, Lionel Hampton, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Sonny Stitt and Stuff Smith. This show is part of the St. Louis Public Radio Fall member campaign and I am asking that you make your contributions during this time. Public radio is under attack and without public radio-no jazz on the air in its birthplace. It’s that simple.
The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the artists heard on this show.
Te Archive of this show can be heard until the morning of September 18, 2017.
Here is a video from a 1957 concert in Brussels with Oscar Peterson (p) Ray Brown (b) and Herb Ellis (g) playing "Tenderly."
