Oscar Peterson and Friends

"The Maharajah of the keyboard", as Duke Ellington named Oscar Peterson, was simply O.P. to his many friends. One of the best and most successful piano players, this supremely gifted artist from Montreal, Canada, reached international stardom through his long-standing association with Norman Granz and his "Jazz At The Philharmonic" events. The concert series not only introduced Peterson to the Jazz-world, but also to some of its outstanding musicians. This box presents twelve rare and remarkable original albums by Peterson, presenting him with his trio (or in quartet- or even big band-settings), and alongside a few of his most legendary musical associates. Carefully selected, these classic recordings with Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz, Lester Young, and Buddy DeFranco show just how great Peterson really was - both as a soloist and as an accompanist. A pure delight: Jazz at its best.
