Weekend Extra: Oscar Peterson and NHØP

Here is a lovely opportunity to hear and see two masters toward the ends of their lives. Oscar Peterson played at the Montreal Jazz Festival in July of 2004 with bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, guitarist Ulf Wakenius and drummer Alvin Queen. The piece is “Cakewalk.”

NHØP died the following April, Peterson in December of 2007. To see other videos from their Montreal concert, go here.
