Born in Montreal in 1925 in the working-class neighbourhood of Little Burgundy, Oscar Peterson became one of the most important pianists in the history of jazz. As accompanist to the greatest jazz vocalists of all time, including Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, recognition of his talent quickly spread far beyond his hometown. The Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble pays tribute to Canada’s Oscar Peterson! With Rémi Bolduc on saxophone, Fraser Hollins on double bass, Dave Laing on drums, and special guest pianist Taurey Butler.
