There are great pianists all throughout history that can play fantastic riffs, but I couldn’t find anyone who could match the magic of Oscar Peterson. The effortless myriads of complex and mystical melodies just emanated from this man with just a mere thought behind a grand. If he could think it, he could play it. As great as he was, still a lot of people had never heard of him. He died on a night when I was actually playing near his home in Ontario, Canada. If you would like to know more about this man, you only need to “Google” his name. When it comes to jazz piano, you will be hard pressed to find anyone better. Today I wanted to share this for all who would ever like to play piano in hopes that you can find inspiration from this man. “Greatness is what greatness does… and Oscar Peterson did greatness well…” Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
