This riveting music documentary traces the history of piano legend Oscar Peterson, from his early days as Montreal's teenage boogie-woogie sensation, through his meteoric rise to international celebrity. One highlight in the treasure trove of musical gems is the legendary Oscar Peterson Trio (bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis) who, after a 20-year hiatus, reunited in order to “prove that it still had the magic.” Over 45 minutes of classic and contemporary performances complemented by rare film footage and in-depth interviews with a cast of jazz legends creates a chronicle spanning four decades of Oscar Peterson's unforgettable music. 1 hour, 46 minutes.
