89th birthday of Oscar Peterson

(Born 15 August 1925, Montreal, Canada)

Award winning pianist, bandleader and composer (including the human rights classic, “Hymn to freedom”) whose resplendent duo (piano, bass/guitar/piano/trumpet/voice) and trio ensembles (piano, bass, drums) establish an authoritative space in the jazz repertoire for well over 50 years starting from the late 1940s
