2010-2011 concert season at Koerner Hall of Royal Conservatory in Toronto included series of concerts to celebrate tribute to Canadian own jazz giant, pianist Oscar Peterson.
Some of the biggest names in jazz were invited to pay the tribute in five part series. Musicians who played with Oscar Peterson and younger generation artists gladly accepted the invitation and created a fabulous tribute. Performances presented Oscar's long career highlights – Oscars’s Songbooks with best Toronto musicians Dave Young and Robi Botos and others, Oscar’s Solo with McCoy Tyner and Alfredo Rodrigez, Oscar’s Trios with Benny Green, Peter Washington and Ulf Wakenius, Oscar’s Swings with Monty Alexander, Russell Malone, Houston Person and Roberta Gambarini, Oscar’s Blues with Roy Hargrove, George Cable and Christian McBride. Part of the shows included conversations with artists about their experiences playing with one and only Oscar Peterson.
