The term ‘legend’ can be bandied about rather too often in jazz circles, but there is no danger of over-estimating the status of Oscar Peterson. Regarded by the jazz community as one of the most important, influential and revered pianists of all time, his death in December 2007 was a huge blow to music as a whole, not just to the genre.

His technical dexterity and searching melodies can be heard on over two hundred recordings and earned him seven Grammy awards, but more than this he was admired by jazz lovers the world over throughout a career that lasted over sixty years. Peterson played Ronnie Scott’s many times in his day, and for this tribute night the club will keep the music and memory of him alive by bringing together a selection of highly respected contemporary pianists to celebrate his life and works. In these shows there will be two grand pianos set in the traditional way, facing each other. Amongst the performers will be pianists James Pearson and Dave Newton who will be hosting the night with friends and special guests.

Tonight's performance will feature some of Oscar’s classic trio composition ‘The Canadiana Suite’.
