Born in Montreal in 1925, Oscar Peterson became one of the most important pianists in the entire 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 Peterson in this special performance. Known for intense yet controlled musicianship, breathtaking precision and a magnetic stage presence, Bolduc is one of Canada’s greatest jazz saxophonists. Joined by his skilled band, he captivates audiences with dazzling virtuosity and stunning maturity – a must-see performance.
