Oscar Peterson  - The Classic Verve Albums Collection

Oscar Peterson - The Classic Verve Albums Collection


Born 25th August, 1925 in Montreal, Canada, Oscar Emmanuel Peterson grew up in Little Burgundy, a predominantly black neighbourhood in greater Quebec. He took up piano and trumpet at age five, quickly becoming adept on both instruments. At seven he was diagnosed with tuberculosis which prevented him from playing the trumpet, he thus concentrated on the piano during this time, practising four to six hours a day. Studying under the Hungarian-born player Paul de Marky - himself a student of virtuoso Istvan Thoman - the young Oscar began learning classical piano but later switched to jazz styles, most notably ‘boogie-woogie’.
This 4CD collection brings together eight of Oscar Peterson’s finest albums, all recorded for the esteemed Verve label during his heyday in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  A dynamic introduction to Peterson’s best work, this box set equally serves as a welcome reminder for those already familiar.
