That was breathtaking to watch/hear. Thank you for sharing.

I must confess I was momentarily confused after clicking the link -- my brain read "Oscar Robinson" instead of "Oscar Peterson" and was expecting to see a basketball, not a piano. grinning smiley



It is what it is.

Been a while since I watched Peterson, my loss. He truly was special.

Wonderful, one of my favorite pianists. I got to see him at the Blue Note once. It probably my most memorable jazz experience. Still have the handbill I took off the wall on the way out.

That was absolutely magnificent! My mind is blown.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Yes they did. I bet Barney was thinking, "What am I going to play?"
I think Barney only played when Oscar had to wipe his face.

Funny thing: I saw both in Milwaukee in the early 70s, back when Robinson played for the bucks alongside Lou Al and Peterson was being appreciated by the hippies and would do concerts at different medium venues. I grew up in a tiny village about 20 miles west.
