Product description

Product Description

• By any standards, impresario Norman Granz's method of launching Canadian piano virtuoso Oscar Peterson onto the American jazz public was genuinely inspired. Granz wanted Peterson to appear at a Jazz At The Philharmonic concert at Carnegie Hall on a bill featuring Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Flip Phillips, Ella Fitzgerald etc. When the pianist couldn't obtain a US Work Visa in time, Granz came up with perfect ruse: Oscar Peterson would appear as an unbilled non-paid "guest."

• On the night in question, Granz planted Peterson in the audience. Then, at a pre-arranged moment, casually announced that Peterson "just happened to be in the audience" and invited the piano man to join him on stage. It was then but a short step to the keyboard and, an even shorter step to stardom. Overnight, Oscar Peterson had become the talk of New York.

• This collection includes that memorable occasion plus future sets featuring Ray Brown, Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis.
