Ainda a propósito de Peterson...


Sobre o falecimento de Oscar Peterson, afirmou Herbie Hancock no seu site oficial:

Oscar Peterson redefined swing for modern jazz pianists for the latter half of the 20th century up until today. I consider him the major influence that formed my roots in jazz piano playing. He mastered the balance between technique, hard blues grooving, and tenderness. You’ll find Oscar Peterson’s influence in the generations that came after him. No one will ever be able to take his place.
