Rest in Peace, Oscar Peterson

I don't know how many readers of my blog are jazz fans. I love the musical genre, though I will always be a rock fan first. I was fortunate enough, though, to grow up in Montreal, a city that has one of the best jazz festivals in North America, and during one of those festivals--I can't unfortunately remember which one--I saw Oscar Peterson play. Peterson was a virtuoso, a true musical genius. I am honoured that I was able to see him play. He passed away the other day at the age of 82: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/montreal/story/2007/12/24/obit-peterson-oscar.html. He will be missed............
