Café Mouffe: In Memory of Oscar Peterson

Set 1: Oscar Peterson performs You Look Good To Me at the Montreux Jazz Festival. in 1977. He is accompanied by two bassists,Ray Brown and Niels Pedersen.

We were in downtown Oakville on Christmas Eve as last-minute shoppers deserted the streets and dusk settled and we learned from the CBC that Oscar Peterson had died at age 82 in his home down the road in Mississauga. In his honor I will reprise an early edition of the Mouffe featuring this great jazz man.

Set 2: Oscar Peterson. Sweet Lorraine. He’s joined by Nat King Cole (vocals) and Coleman Hawkins (tenor) on this vintage clip.
