Oscar Peterson dies

December 27, 2007

Another very sad day for a Canadian and a Montrealer: Oscar Peterson has died.

Just this Saturday, I was listening to my favourite album of his, Live at the Blue Note, with Herb Ellis and Roy Brown. While I was enthralled by the music, I couldn’t help thinking that Oscar had to be getting pretty old.

Here’s a piece from the Guardian: http://music.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,,2232130,00.html
