Kelly Peterson, wife of the late jazz legend Oscar Peterson has announced a new project that will honor her late husband. The new release, Oscar, With Love, will feature new compositions by the heavyweight performed by a star-studded line up and much more.
Having delved into the archives of Peterson's past, Kelly has unearthed some new pieces that have never been performed before. Perhaps a disc that will venture back in time, there's a laundry list of talent that will perform songs from Oscar's canon that haven't seen the light of day.
Per Jazz FM, Kelly states:
"It's primarily a solo piano recording. There are some tracks that will feature Dave Young - who was Oscar's bassist and dear friend for years. It is meant to showcase Oscar as a composer. I think some people aren't aware of how much music he actually wrote ... I wanted to share that with everyone."
She continues, "This will be the world premiere for some new Oscar Peterson music."
