In memoriam Oscar Peterson, part one

In memoriam Oscar Peterson, part one

Playing tracks by

Oscar Peterson.

Oscar Emmanuel Peterson was one of my favourite piano players. Made this memorial mix for 4 and a half years, after his death in my weekly radio show at Tilos Radio, Budapest, selecting from some of his LPs and CDs bought by me and my father.
