23 Aug Oscar Trio Peterson – Berlin Concert
This performance from Berlin in 1989 features the Master of the Keyboard backed by the equally legendary bassist Niels-Henning Oersted Pedersen and drummer Martin Drew. Oscar Peterson was a star in Canada, his homeland, before Norman Granz brought him to this country in 1949 for a surprise debut at Carnegie Hall. First, a perennial mainstay of Jazz at the Philharmonic, the charismatic Oscar Peterson soon enjoyed universal popularity. This DVD is a prime example of how he delighted the audiences of five continents in the framework of his superb trios.
