Having worked with Oscar Peterson for five years Lance Anderson gained insight into his genius as both a performer and composer. An extremely competent pianist and narrator himself, Anderson has created this two man theatre piece to pay homage to Peterson’s legend and relate personal tales, reflecting the character and interesting idiosyncrasies of the man himself. Intimate, and at times funny, you will be moved by this touching performance. The audience will have a backstage look into the nature of genius and will gain a further understanding of Oscar's unique place atop the jazz artists of the 20th century!
“Lance is uniquely qualified to help us appreciate not only the special musical genius that was Oscar Peterson, but also what it was to know him as a friend. It’s absolutely wonderful that Lance is sharing his music, stories and insight!” — Holger Peterson CBC Saturday Night Blues.
