Oscar Peterson: Norman Granz Legacy (10CD BoxSet)

Oscar Peterson: Norman Granz Legacy (10CD BoxSet)

Ref: AMBX146

(UK Postage Free )


There are at least five Oscar Petersons on display on this comprehensive 10 x CD Box Set representing Oscars work with the legendary Norman Granz and celebrating his 80th birthday on August 15th 2005.......the virtuoso soloist, the leader of a rapidly evolving piano trio, the master accompanist, the indefatigable anchor of the Jazz At The Philharmonic rhythm section, and the devoted chronicler of the American popular song.
CD's 1-5 of AVID's Re- mastered set focuses on Oscars rather neglected work interpreting the Great American Songbook where he and Granz "tried to draw more people into jazz", including works by Kern, Arlen, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Gershwin amongst many others.
CD 6 features Oscars first session with Granz as he accompanies the legendary Billie Holiday across 16 sides that show his talent as an accompanist.
CD's 7-8 capture Oscars collaboration with four leading tenor sax men, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Stan Getz getting fired up with Dizzy Gillespie and a rare session with the unique Flip Phillips.
CD's 9-10 features the entire 1954 issue from the JATP, including Oscar playing alongside such names as Lester Young, Bill Harris and Ray Brown.
Complete with a fine essay by Dr Richard Palmer AVID's latest release is a testament to a great pianist whose courage, dedication and sheer will shine through in his playing and to a great partnership with his friend, mentor and patron Norman Granz.
